“A loose-fitting collection of three stories by a prolific poet, novelist, and playwright: a low-key fantasy about a magical impressionist who discovers that disguises are really a search for true self; an impressionistic portrait of the enforcers and exploiters of the law in the rural South; and an amusing shaggy-dog account of a Florida tent revival meeting which escalates into a patchwork of grotesquerie and bizarre coincidence.” —Library Journal 

George Garrett --poet, novelist, critic, and editor--has written seven previous volumes of poetry, including Luck's Shining Child. He is Henry Hoyns Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Virginia.
