A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

"Physical closeness to the natural world underscores all the best imagery in Sweet Eyes. . . . Ms. Agee is a gifted poet of that dark lushness in the heart of the American landscape."—New York Times Book Review.

"A big, complicated book about small-town life, in the great American tradition of Faulkner, Willa Cather, and Sherwood Anderson." —Philadelphia Inquirer.

"This is a multileveled and sensitive novel about victimization and the struggle to defeat it. . . . [Agee] clearly shows herself to be a significant new novelist."—Chicago Tribune.

"While Agee demonstrates that the roots of psychosis and violence often start within the family, she also makes a case for the family’s importance—and for the necessity of self-esteem—writing with fearless precision and evocative detail."—Publishers Weekly.

Sweet Eyes is the wondrous story of the young woman Honey Parrish, who becomes involved in an interracial love affair and struggles to solve longstanding mysteries in her hometown and to move beyond her family’s troubled past.
