"On yes nights while the moon was once complete and Lavis used to be on his method to getting blind under the influence of alcohol, he might force Zeb out to his outdated homeplace at the Choctoosie River."

So starts the tale of Zeb Dupree, a musician suffering to discover his non secular and emotional bearings within the wake of his father's suicide and his personal failed marriage. Zeb's Father, and alcoholic sharecropper, were keen about the lack of his family's farm. This obsession grew to become, for Zeb, a "parable concerning the destruction of dreams." in the course of his youth and early twenties, Zeb controlled to upward push above his impoverished history. even though, via a chain of losses, his existence spirals downward till he unearths himself dwelling in a bus at the back of a junkyard--lonely and burdened, with in simple terms his magical mess around for solace.

Against a richly textured Southern heritage, Stephen March has shaped a narrative of 1 man's look for redemption and his get away from his father's legacy.
