it was amazing
Read in May, 2010

Paints a picture of South Louisiana like nobody else. Tend to have the same problem with Burke as with McCarthy-the poetry gets tedious and in the way of the story. One can only read about swaying trees and purple skies so many times in one book: if you want to be a poet write poetry, dammit. In my fiction, I want a story. In this book, however, the story doesn't suffer. The best Burke book I've read.
