Synopsis : A New York Times Notable Book. For his seventh novel, Clyde Edgerton returns to the setting of his own childhood--rural North Carolina at mid-twentieth century. This beguiling novel tells the story of a tight-knit crossroads community and what happens when a quick-change artist stops for gas and an oil check, sees opportunities, and decides to stop there for a while. "You'll spend a lot of time laughing and wiping your eyes and reading passages aloud to anyone who'll listen."--Boston Globe; "This may be Edgerton's best novel ever. I say that each time I finish one of his books."--Newark Star-Ledger ; "Edgerton, evoking Flannery O'Connor, composed chatty, tone-perfect tales of small town life that illuminate the knife edge between satire and nostalgia." --Entertainment Weekly; "A slyly satiric and artful story . . . Edgerton reveals the innocent, the deluded, and the hypocritical with an unerring sense of humor and truth."--Publishers Weekly; "In the pitch-perfect tradition of Flannery O'Connor and William Faulkner, Edgerton spins things wildly, masterfully, hilariously out of control."--Maxim.

Quatrième de couverture:
"What Garrison Keillor has done for Lake Wobegon, Edgerton has done for Listre, creating a place of battered charms and dog-eared lore."
--The Washington Post

"Here, evil comes to sleepy Listre, N.C., circa 1950, in the form of a stranger with a pencil-thin mustache and a trunkful of dirty movies. Listre is the kind of rustic crossroads where the most exciting event in years was a collision between a mule and a pickup truck, where boys slip over to the Gulf station for a Nehi and a peek at the pinup calendar, and where everybody knows everybody else's secrets. It's the kind of place, in other words, where it seems like nothing ever changes--until the fateful day when everything changes at once."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Hilarious . . . Wonderful . . . Edgerton engagingly captures small-town America."
--Atlanta Journal & Constitution

"As much the story of a man who brings random badness into a good place as it is the story of a boy's search for his own salvation."
--Mark Childress
The New York Times Book Review

"His best book since Walking Across Egypt."
--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A wonderful gallery of comic characters . . . In Clyde Edgerton, Southern Baptists have found a laureate to uncover their rich humor and humanity and to share without condescension or condemnation."
--The Boston Globe

"Side-splittingly funny . . . Clyde Edgerton is the love child of Dave Barry and Flannery O'Connor."
--Raleigh News and Observer
