The novel centers on a deaf-mute man named John Singer and the people he encounters in a 1930s mill town in Georgia. The struggles of four of his primary acquaintances make up the majority of the narrative; they are Mick Kelly, a young girl, Jake Blount, a labor agitator, Biff Brannon, a restauranteur, and Dr. Benedict Copeland, an idealistic African-American doctor.
