Prolific, award-winning author Stephen Graham Jones deftly blends fiction and reality in this captivating novel about small-town paranoia and coming home. Twenty-five years ago in Greenwood, Texas, a violent fire erupted in the tiny cotton-growing community. No one ever took responsibility and no one was ever caught. Instead, the town moved forward as if nothing happened. Today, the embers still smolder, but a reckoning may soon be on the horizon.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book is an ambitious hybrid of fact and myth, past and present, that calls into question the nature of truth itself…the novel is unified by Jones's rhythmic prose and his evident compassion for his former neighbors' tragedies—both personal and pastoral.” Publishers Weekly
“What a wonderful book. Has all the flavor of memoir and all the miracle of fiction. I loved this book.” Joe Lansdale, author of All the Earth, Thrown to the Sky
