SYNOPSIS: “This powerful collection of James Lee Burke’s short fiction ranges across landscapes that he has made his own, from rural Louisiana and Mississippi to war-torn Korea and a New Orleans ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.
Told with his trademark blend of lyrical prose and hard-eyed realism, they bring a host of extraordinary characters to vivid life: soldiers and prostitutes, nuns and children, musicians and gangsters, movingly exploring ‘the near certainty of tragedy to come and the smouldering embers of possibility in the ashes of blighted lives.”
