"First novel in 14 years from the gifted spinner of Southern tales (Beach Music, 1995, etc.)-a tail-wagging shaggy dog at turns mock-epic and gothic, beautifully written throughout…. Conroy is a natural at weaving great skeins of narrative, and this one will prove a great pleasure to his many fans."Kirkus (starred review)

“Lush, remarkable… sprawling, heartbreaking… Conroy is a master of American fiction and he has proved it once again in this magnificent love letter to his beloved Charleston.”Bookpage

"Echoing some themes from his earlier novel, Conroy fleshes out the impossibly dramatic details of each of the friends' lives in this vast intricate story, and he reveals truths about love, lust, classicism, racism, religion, and what it means to be shaped by a particular place, be it Charelston, South Carolina or anywhere else in the United States."Booklist
