Book Description:

A novel that has drawn comparisons with the work of J. D. Salinger, Truman Capote, and Flannery O Connor, Edisto centers on one Simons Everson Manigault, a twelve year old possessed of a vocabulary and sophistication way beyond his years and a preadolescent bewilderment with the behavior of adults. These include his mother, who is known as the Duchess, and his enigmatic father surrogate, Taurus. Imbued with a strong sense of place an isolated strip of South Carolina coast called Edisto Padgett Powell s novel is truly remarkable . . . both as a narrative and in its extraordinary use of language (Walker Percy).
