Editorial Reviews

Review

It is a great joy to witness (in 'Tournament' the flowering of Shelby Foote. The novel is rife with glimpses of the writer he has since become. --Southern Living Magazine

About the Author

Shelby Foote is now recognized as one of the icons of American literature, thanks in part to the role he played in Ken Burns' 'Civil War' series on PBS. Although he began his career as a novelist, he is regarded by critics as a master of historical narrative. His Civil War narratives, published by Random House, are the standard against which all other studies of this sort must be weighed. Prior to his death in 2005, he was working on another novel, 'Seven Gates to the City'. He was a long-time resident of Memphis, Tennessee.

Most everyone acquainted with Shelby Foote know him through his Civil War history and the Ken Burns Civil War series. He is, however, a Southern novelist of the first calibre, and his raw talents are spectacularly displayed in this his first published work. Most writers could strive for a lifetime and never come close to the quality of this book. I highly recomend it to anyone who is interested in Foote as a writer or in Southern literature as a genre.

I greatly enjoy the works of Shelby Foote--but this is one of my favorites.

If you like southern literature, you will find this to be one of the best books you have ever read.

Foote is far more accessible than Faulkner (who is another favorite of mine), but if you like Faulkner, you are bound to be enthralled with Foote. And if you find Faulkner a bit too much, try Shelby Foote!

I just wish Foote had written more novels!

When Foote finished reading David Copperfield, he felt he knew David that anyone he had ever known including himself. When I finished Tournament, I knew Bart and his faithful servant, Billy Boy inside and out. The sense of time and place was also very real and accurate. I read it for the story and reread it for the beauty of the words. This is a book I will read a 3rd time.
