Hilarious, tender and sad, this is a must-read for anyone who grew up in the 40s and 50s -- especially for those who remember when electricity instantly changed lives in some of the remotest inhabited areas of the United States. In this bittersweet coming-of-age story, Terry Kay blends young love and class-consciousness to create a marvelous portrait of the rural South poised on the brink of change.

Terry Kay was born February 10, 1938 in Royston, Georgia. He grew up there and became a well known novelist. Perhaps his most well-known book is To Dance with the White Dog, which was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie starring Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy in 1983. He is also the author of such best-selling works as Dark Thirty, Shadow Song, After Eli, and The Runaway. He won an Emmy for his screenplay Run Down the Rabbit. Kay's novel The Valley of Light won the 2004 Townsend Prize for Fiction. He won the 1981 Georgia Author of the Year Award for After Eli, and the Southeastern Library Association named him Outstanding Author of the Year in 1991 for To Dance with the White Dog. He published The Book of Marie in 2007.

William J. Scheick is the J. R. Millikan Centennial Professor of English and American Literature at the University of Texas at Austin.
