Edisto and Edisto Revisited: In One Volume

'“[Edisto is] 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“Powell cleverly mocks the burdens of southern history . . . and plays Simons as the most outlandish southern poseur, but it’s his awesome command of language that finally makes him a writer to reckon with.” —Kirkus Reviews'
