From Library Journal
With Arkansas in the forefront of the news, Butler's challenging tale of love, lust, and loss in Little Rock has all the ingredients of a winner. There is Lianne, a former beauty queen and television personality and her husband, Charles, a successful liberal lawyer and millionaire. There are also the members of Charles's firm: Tina, a poor girl made good; Lafayette, an African American former football star; and Greg, the token WASP. There's cocaine, a hostile sheriff, a creation science law, group therapy, and a couple of inept assassins. The whole story is narrated by the Holy Ghost in an Ozark accent. With multiple viewpoints, stream-of-consciousness narrative, and more than one demented character, this is not an easy read. But in the end, it is a highly satisfying one from a very talented Southern author ( Jujitsu for Christ , August House, 1986). Recommended for larger general collections.- Andrea Caron Kempf, Johnson Cty. Community Coll. Lib., Overland Park, Kan.
