Winner of an Academy Award in Literature, a pair of National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, and the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction, Jayne Anne Phillips is a master storyteller. Her first novel in nine years concerns a West Virginia family facing the spectre of the Korean War.More
"This poetic novel alternates between the last hours of Robert Leavitt, a corporal in the U.S. Army, pinned down in a tunnel in South Korea, in 1950, and the story of his disabled son, Termite, who, nine years later, is living with his half sister, Lark, and their aunt in West Virginia." (The New Yorker)
"Through Robert and Nonie's stories and by exposing the innermost thoughts of each character, Phillips creates a wrenching portrait of devotion while keeping the suspense at a palpitating level." (Publishers Weekly)
