A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A man looks back on one summer in his boyhood in a sleepy, dusty, hot town on the Gulf of Mexico, a summer spent working at a restaurant and roaming the highways with his friend, the son of junk dealers. IP. "

Review:

In Lovesong For The Giant Contessa, Steven Culbert transports the reader to the place where the South Plains of texas meet the gun-barrel blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a place of two-bit barbershops devoid of customers, lonely stretches of highway, ramshackle houses, and abandoned construction sites. His narrator sees the world through a diffracted lens -- through which we are privy to a disturbing and desolate reality. Exceptional writing, memorable characters. -- Midwest Book Review
