From a writer hailed as an American original comes a taut, expansively imagined drama about four generations of an African-American family. Set in Louisville, Kentucky, in the 1970s, the Telfairs are stonemasons and have been for generations. Out of the love that binds Ben Telfair and his grandfather, Papaw, and the gulf that separates them from the Telfairs who have forsake and dishonored the family trade, McCarthy has crafted a drama that bears all the hallmarks of his great fiction: precise observation of the physical world; language that has the bite of common speech and the force of Biblical prose; and a breathtaking command of the art of storytelling.
