The Persistence of Memory. Betty stayed sitting upright in bed, straining to hear any sound of movement from below, waiting for the scrape as whoever had been playing stood from the piano stool.

Willliams book is a superb example of the art of the novel. Told from the vantage point of an omniscient narrator, the novel weaves together the landscape of the Mississippi floodplain with the pschological lansdcape of a young woman's journey from innocence to worldliness. Acting as a lens for the story is the overarching metaphor of the effect of memory, real or fiction, as a mechanism of meaning. Mr. Williams writes with the rare ability of making tangible the interior thoughtworld of his characters. His style is visceral, beautiful to behold. This book is highly recommended!

Alone following the death of her brother in Vietnam, her father's suicide, and her mother's death, Kate falls under the dangerous influence of charismatic and eccentric Southern relations she had never known existed. A first novel. 15,000 first printing.

It's always refreshing in the vein of John Irving to find a novelist who can write something so dark and even depressing while never failing to insert a healthy dose of humor. The story follows a tragic family and the surviving member, Kate. As she comes to grips with the loss of family while "discovering" a new branch of relatives; Williams manages to create some very funny moments. Humor is part of all our lives, even if we don't see it. I anxiously await his next novel. Also, if you want to see further examples of the quality of his prose check out "Raising Lazarus", which although it may tell the physician-heal-thy-self-story of Dr. Robert Pensack - the words clearly belong to Williams.

This was a book handed to me by my 3 year old daughter as we were exiting the small lending library by the pool of our condominium. I had already perused the shelves and determined that there was nothing there for me. I grabbed the book in haste and that night, having nothing else to read, opened it. It stayed open until the pink sky rose over the mountain outside of my bedroom window. Even as I slumped through the day, tired and fuzzy, this book was so worth losing a night's sleep. Haunting and Perfect.
