When Delia Byrd packs her car and begins the long trip home from Los Angeles-from the glamour of the rock 'n roll business, her passion for singing and songwriting, and the darker days of whisky and violence and too much belief in the promises of a man she loved-she heads to Cairo, Georgia, and her own unresolved past. Ten years earlier, Delia left the husband who turned on her, abandoned her two daughters, one an infant, and fled to California. But Delia is pulled back to Georgia: to a world of convenience stores and biscuit factories, kudzu and deep-rooted Baptism-to make a deal with the man she paid a high price to leave. She brings her third daughter, Cissy, with her. And as the lives of Delia, Cissy, Amanda, and Dede converge, Delia's past uncoils into the present with a ferocity that brings all four women to terms with themselves and with one another.Told in the incantatory and unforgettable voice of one of America's greatest storytellers, Cavedweller is a sweeping novel of the human spirit that maps a world of "lost" and "known" caves, the unexplored recesses of the heart, and the lives of four women at a place where violence, and what redeems it, intersect.' Bastard Out of Carolina was a National Book Award Finalist and a national bestseller. ? The critically acclaimed film adaptation of Bastard Out of Carolina, directed by Angelica Houston, was broadcast on Showtime in 1996 and is now available on videocassette. ? Cavedweller is the long-awaited, greatly anticipated second novel from a beloved author with a strong and loyal audience. ? The Plume edition of Bastard Out of Carolina averages 6,000 copies in sales each month.
