by Christopher Brookhouse

Summer. 1960. Finn grew up in the South. He should have known when the school he worked for admitted a student of color there would be trouble. He should have known not to have an Indian for a friend. He should have known not to get involved with Annabel Spier. But he could not have known what he comes to know: how the secrets of the past shake loose one by one, and what he thought he knew he did not know.

“FINN is the real thing—a southern Gothic tale in which the narrator must solve the mystery of his own nature in order to escape the web of violence in which he is caught. Start it when you have time to finish because you won’t want to put it down.”
     — Terry Roberts, author of A Short Time to Stay Here, winner of the Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction.

“In prose that is as rich and languorous as the summer that serves as the novel’s backdrop, Christopher Brookhouse brings readers a novel that is perfectly crafted, expertly paced, and, most importantly, very, very good.”
     — Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of A Land More Kind Than Home and This Dark Road to Mercy.

“A layered work, mottled and shifting like visions through antique glass, shadowed by ever lurking violence, as if written by a Southern-born Jim Harrison. A novel to be savored more than once, written with the same languorous, rumbling passion of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward's film The Long Hot Summer.
     — Kirkus Reviews
