"In a deft series of interconnected stories, Morte d'Eden weaves a bittersweet chronicle of small-town Southern life three decades ago. Against a background of sexual exploration, racial division, and conflict between the young and the old, narrator Charlie Beagle and his buddies search for love and meaning on their way from high school toward college. A convincing record of one generation."
