About the Book

"Goyen created a region of memory which belongs purely to the piney woods of East Texas. Goyen called his town Charity, and he peopled it with characters like Boy Ganchion, who was tortured by the necessary repression of his sexual urges. The elements may sound like misplaced Yoknapatawpha, but Goyen makes them distinctly East Texas." --A.C. Greene THE 50 BEST BOOKS ON TEXAS.
