Description
From the #1 New York Times -bestselling author of Sophie's Choice : three novellas of a young writer's journey to adulthood. In Love Day , twenty-year-old Paul Whitehurst is a Marine lieutenant during World War II, waiting to land on Okinawa, wrestling with anxiety and memories of his boyhood in Virginia. In Shadrach , ten-year-old Paul witnesses his neighbors as they welcome a guest: a ninety-nine-year-old former slave who has walked nine hundred miles from Alabama so that he may die on the land of his childhood owner. And in A Tidewater Morning , Paul is thirteen and struggling to deal with his mother's impending death from cancer. Together in one volume, each of these affecting semiautobiographical novellas from the author of such literary classics as the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Confessions of Nat Turner and the memoir Darkness Visible , weaves together the transformative experiences of Whitehurst's early life with William Styron's signature deep historical insight, underscoring how the significance of the past informs the present. As the Los Angeles Times notes, it is "one of Styron's finest works. . . . The beauty and humanity of the Southern tradition are evoked vividly." This ebook features a new illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives.
