Michael Farris Smith has written an effortlessly erudite complex and lucid novel of conseuence set in the ravaged town of McComb Mississippi It tells of the travails of lives brimful of pain unravelling under the relentless and searing southern heat It displays a bone deep understanding of Southern traditions and people and in the narrative I could hear the timeless musical laments of jazz and blues singers such as Robert Johnson Leadbelly and Bessie Smith It is the story of Russell released after 11 years of imprisonment and Maben and her daughter Annalee fleeing a unspeakable scenario that results in a fatal shooting Their paths cross and certain actions and possibilities come into play The focus is on the themes of alcohol and drug addiction love loss regrets redemption and dreams that slip away beyond reach The tone is set when upon reaching McComb Russell is welcomed by a vicious beating by Larry and Walt the brothers of the man he killed Russell sees that in the eyes of some people no amount of atonement will suffice not even the loss of his precious relationship with Sarah Larry is exploding with visceral rage and hate ignited by the self hatred within him driven to destroy all that he touches Russell finds some solace in his father who has begun a relationship with an ex slave Consuela after his wife dies whilst Russell was still in prison Maben struggles to find a place of rest and work and escape the conseuences of her actions She is slowly and inexorably sliding to a place where she is hanging by a thread and seeing nothing that can alleviate a desperate ending Then she meets Russell who upon hearing her tale hopes to find redemption Connections between the two of them become clearer later onThe expressive prose has a finesse and vitality that seamlessly ensnares the reader The sharply drawn characters weave their way into your consciousness as real and authentic people I imagine that as the author has a preacher for a father that the themes of judgement forgiveness and justice were points for constant discussion which then went on to inform this novel There is certainly great symbolism in the concrete statue of the Virgin Mary in the book I felt faint echoes of the biblical story of Job s suffering whilst I was reading It is the author s ability to bring humanity to every character irrespective of what they may have done that marks this as an outstanding and superb read Highly recommended Thanks to Oldcastle Books for an ARC 777 the Lost Blood temps à autre apparaît un auteur amoureux de son art du langage écrit et des grands mystères ui résident de l'autre côté du monde physiue Il y avait William Faulkner Cormac McCarthy ou Annie Proulx Vous pouvez maintenant ajouter Michael Farris Smith à la liste James Lee BurkeUne femme marche seule avec une petite fille sur une route de Louisiane Elle n'a nulle part où aller Partie.
