Sweet & Low
The Wild Turkey-soaked stories in White's collection,
including one about a quartet of bookish 30-somethings doing the horizontal
fox-trot on a famous writer's grave, are as sumptuous and darkly shimmering as
the Mississippi, along which many of them are set. "Its bigness still
surprised," White writes of the sky above the delta. Likewise, the
expansiveness here astounds.
