An irresistible novel about food, desire, and the real-life love triangle between M.F.K. Fisher, her husband, and the man she left him for, the true love of her life.
Infinitesimal epiphanies are the best thing about Warlick's third novel (after 200o's The Summer After June), narrated by 33-year-old Joan Patee, an archivist who longs for a baby and whose husband, Marshall, is perpetually away on business.
This strong second novel, the haunting tale of one woman's heartbreaking journey into the many realms of love, confirms Warlick's talent, first glimpsed in her debut The Distance from the Heart of Things.
A coming-of-age story set in the deep South, where the transformation of Mavis Black, a young woman who just graduated from college, reflects changes taking place in the land in which she grew up.
