This is the compelling novel of a man brought to reckon with his buried past. In a small rural black community in Louisiana, Rev. Phillip Martin comes face to face with the sins of his youth in Robert X, a young sinister stranger who arrives in town for a mysterious meeting with the Reverend.

"It is the force of Mr. Gaines's character and intelligence, operating through [his] deceptively quiet style, that makes his fiction compelling...The dialogue is spare, but unerring, and humor will keep slipping in subtly despite the tragedies behind these lives."--Larry McMurtry, The New York Times Book Review
