Présentation de l'éditeur :

Pete Dexter’s National Book Award–winning tour de force tells the mesmerizing story of a shocking crime that shatters lives and exposes the hypocrisies of a small Southern town.
 
The time and place: Cotton Point, Georgia, just after World War II. The event: the murder of a fourteen-year-old black girl by a respected white citizen named Paris Trout, who feels he’s done absolutely nothing wrong. As a trial looms, the crime eats away at the social fabric of Cotton Point, through its facade of manners and civility. Trout’s indifference haunts his defense lawyer; his festering paranoia warps his timid, quiet wife; and Trout himself moves closer to madness as he becomes obsessed with his cause—and his vendettas.
 
Praise for Paris Trout
 
“A masterpiece, complex and breathtaking . . . [Pete] Dexter portrays his characters with marvelous sharpness.” Los Angeles Times
 
“A psychological spellbinder that will take your breath away and probably interfere with your sleep.” The Washington Post Book World
 
“Dexter’s brilliant understanding of the Deep South has allowed him to capture much of its essence—its bitter class distinctions, its violence, its strangeness—with a fidelity of detail and an ear for speech that I have rarely encountered since Flannery O’Connor.” —William Styron
 
“Dexter’s powerfully emotional novel doesn’t have any brakes. Hang on, because you won’t be able to stop until the finish.” Chicago Tribune

Description du livre HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 1993. Paperback. État : New. 192 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A gothic tale of murder, injustice, and mayhem in a small Georgia town at the end of WW II, by the hypnotically gifted author of God s Pocket (1983) and Deadwood (1986). Paris Trout - a disheveled, miserly, eccentric, and amoral but nonetheless locally respectable hardware-store owner and loan shark - is the murderer; his victim is a 14-year-old black girl named Rosie Sayers, whom he kills in a shooting spree brought on by a black boy s failure to repay a loan. Much against the will of the comfortable Southern town, Trout s trial is a fair one, and he s sentenced to prison; but Trout is smart, wily, and resolute with a mad determination not to pay for something he doesn t consider to have been a crime - with the result that he bribes and blackmails his way out of jail, returning to the town as a living irritant to its inhabitants consciences. But Trout grows madder: and, finally, urine-stained and utterly deluded. With a conviction that his estranged wife - a wonderful, stoical character by the name of Hannah Trout - is poisoning him, Trout holes up in the county courthouse during the town s sesquicentennial celebration and, having shot his stroke-ridden mother in the head ( I end my connections with everything that come before ), opens fire on the rest of his enemies: his lawyer, Harry Seagraves; his wife s divorce lawyer ( the youngest Eagle Scout in the history of the state ), and other local noteworthies and respectables. Once again, Dexter shows a mesmerizing mastery of character development, pace and tone; Cotton Point, Ga., lives and breathes, and Paris Trout menaces us and he menaces it. The larger message - that racism is a form of madness that overspills its boundaries - is murky; but this is nonetheless a fascinating read. (Kirkus Reviews). N° de réf. du libraire AA89780006545477
