Synopsis : 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

Synopsis: A respected white citizen of Cotton Point, Georgia, Paris Trout is a shopkeeper, a money-lender, and a murderer of blacks. And his friends, family and foes do not realize the danger they face in a man who simply will not see his own guilt.#Penguin.
