Description
Welcome to Shiver-de-Freeze, a boot-shaped precinct deep in the Louisiana swamp, famous for its healing waters and curious fauna. Grisham Loudermilk is marrying Ariane Thevenot at Paradise, the family's ancestral home, but reason and love, it would seem, keep little company in Paradise these days, as Grisham's cousin Adlai Birdsong has fallen desperately in love with the bride-to-be. The author of Requiem, Mass. and Love Warps the Mind a Little here gives us a star-crossed clan of lively and unforgettable characters.

"This, brothers and sisters, is tale-telling that bends time in the direction of beauty."—Lee K. Abbott

"Imagining John Irving, William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, or Max Shulman (or all of the above at once) on peyote juice only begins to evoke the dimension and energy of the seriocomic fantasies of Dufresne at his freewheeling, frenetic best. In his latest, a sequel (of sorts) to his 1994 debut novel Louisiana Power & Light, this talented writer creates rambunctious fun tinged with melancholy as he revisits the oddball and grotesque characters and exotic trailer park and plantation landscapes of the Louisiana bayous and byways. Memory, fidelity and destiny are paramount themes as [John] Dufresne sheds warm light on the caprices of the heart and mind."—Publishers Weekly
