"An epic odyssey in which a young man must choose between the lure of the future and the claims of the past…With clouds looming on the horizon, a group of children play among the roots of the gnarled Bone Tree. Their games will be interrupted by a merciless storm--bringing with it the Great Flood of 1927…Teeming with language that Entertainment Weekly hailed as 'sun-scorched prose [that] recalls William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, and Cormac McCarthy,' Southern Cross the Dog is a tour de force of literary imagination that voices both the savage beauty and complex humanity of the American South."--publisher description
