Edisto: A Novel

'“A remarkable book . . . there is not a line that simply slides by; each, in one way or another, turns things to a fresh and unexpected angle.” —Los Angeles Times“Simons Manigault is brother to all literary adolescents—Mailer’s D.J., Salinger’s Holden Caulfield, Joyce’s Stephen Dedalus. . . . A sparkling read, so full of an energetic intelligence, inventiveness, love of language, and love of people.” —The New York Times Book Review“Truly remarkable. . . . It reminds one of The Catcher in the Rye, but it’s better—sharper, funnier, more poignant.” —Walker Percy“Edisto is a startling book, full of new sights, sounds, and ways of feeling. Mr. Powell weaves wonderful tapestries from ordinary speech; his people, black and white, whether speaking to each other or past each other, tell us things that we never heard before. The book is subtle, daring, and brilliant.” —Donald Barthelme '
