About this title


Book by Wilson, Z. Vance

From Library Journal:

Wilson's fine novel, set in the rural South of the 1940s and 1950s, explores one family's convoluted history. Physical and emotional violence, religious fanaticism, and pot-boiling love and hate combine to define one of those bizarre families, seemingly exaggerated but all too familiar to most Southerners. The Treadwells, headed by the certifiably insane Robert and long-suffering Mattie, repeatedly sacrifice themselves and each other for no apparent good reasons but always with some father-against-son motivation that makes sense to the individual at the time. Descriptions of places and events are perfectly on targetWilson has evidently sat in on a few tent revivals, and the experience has served him well. A pleasure to read, The Quick and the Dead belongs in most collections. Mary K. Prokop, CEL Regional Lib., Savannah, Ga.
