Larry Brown is hailed as one of today's most talented Southern writers. With the release of each book, including Dirty Work, Father and Son, and Joe, reviewers and fans offer increasingly enthusiastic praise for the astonishing characters he creates.

At 17, Fay Jones leaves her family's squalid home with $3 in her bra and ragged sneakers on her feet. As she heads for Biloxi, people befriend her (a policeman, his wife, a bouncer) but her impact on their lives is seductive and unpredictable. Beautiful and naive, Fay becomes the catalyst in a chain reaction of desire and violence. Her journey provides unflinching snapshots of the South, from beaches to bar rooms. Wherever she lands, though, Fay is fueled by a deep-rooted will to survive. Narrator Tom Stechschulte voices every nuance of this unforgettable young woman's personality and her transient, often brutal, world. Download and start listening now!

    " The last novel I read of Larry's. I marvel at his ability to see inside the mind and heart of a young girl. "

    " Okay, so the review might be a bit biased as I consider Larry Brown one of great authors of recent years (sadly no longer with us). All of his stories, including this one are based in the South, usually Mississippi and unfold like most things in the South slowly, but dramatically. The character of Fay is a seventeen year old runaway, who over the course of the book realizes the hold she has over the men in her life and the pressure it brings. Brown takes his time in letting the characters develop and does not condescend to us by writing stereotypes. All the characters big and small are fully realized with their pain and joys illustrated. In some respects the story Brown tells is a small one but it is told with such flair that as a reader you don't care. "

    " I'm still thinking if this girl daily! Great book that just haunts me. Real... "

    " It's hard for me to rate this book because while it was written extremely well and I couldn't put it down, the subject matter was brutal and uncomfortable. It takes place in the south and the main character, Fay, is young, naive, and just a total mess. I think what bothered me so much is that life like this actually exists for people and I would never want my daughter to run away from home because of a messed up, abusive father and experience all this. So while I thought it was fantastic, I thought it was horrible at the same time. "
