Summary: At the age of sixteen, Moline Bedwell fled her hometown of Resurrection, Missouri, and never looked back. Now, twenty years later, she's intent on returning to Resurrection to take care of some family business. But what started out as a short visit turns increasingly complex as Moline confronts the ghosts of her past and contends with the impact of the present on her dying hometown: she struggles to save her family's pig farm from the greedy clutches of an agriculture conglomerate, and she resumes her passionate affair with Dayrell Bell, the wild hillbilly boy she abandoned all those years ago.Jonis Agee takes us into the hearts and minds of a community on the verge of extinction and introduces us to characters so vivid and memorable that we feel as if we've known them all our lives. In South of Resurrection, Agee's intensely beautiful writing proves yet again why The New York Times calls her a "gifted poet of that dark lushness in the heart of the American landscape.".
