Over the course of twenty years and eight novels, James Wilcox has established himself as one of the most distinctive and beloved voices of the South, a comic master whose work has been praised by writers as diverse as Robert Penn Warren and Anne Tyler. From Modern Baptists to Plain and Normal, he has charted the collision of the stubbornly genteel Old South with a world of franchise food and ethnic diversity, as time-cherished manners and mores threaten to vanish completely. In Heavenly DaysÂhis first novel in five yearsÂWilcox returns to the familiar landscape of Tula Springs, Louisiana, and introduces Lou Jones, a sweetly hapless heroine trying to come to terms with a way of life for which she is utterly unequipped.
