Synopsis: "This is old Memphis--turn-of-the-century Pinch district in all its wicked Irish glory, before Ed Crump and Sodom got the upper hand and 'lilified' the town.  Margaret Skinner has caught its tone in the voices of those who live there, right up to the eve of its disappearance."  --Shelby Foote

Set in the years between 1914 and 1921, Margaret Skinner's rollicking, often hilarious fictional saga of the fortunes of several generations of an Irish-American family draws on the swirling life of Memphis, Tenneseess, to tell a story that usually gets ommitted in accounts of the early 20th century South.

From the Author: Margaret Skinner is a native of Memphis. She graduated from the University of Memphis where she has served a number of times as Visiting Writer.  She was Nida Tomlin Watts Writer-in -Residence at Sweet Briar College in Virginia and Walter E. Dakin Fellow at the Sewanee Writers' Conference.  She is the author of novels Old Jim Canaan and Molly Flanagan and the Holy Ghost .
