Riassunto: Lives of Quiet Desperation is a tale set in the Arkansas Delta in the 1950s. A tornado sweeps through the tiny farming community of Bolandsville, leaving in its wake a path of destruction and death. However, the chaos that the storm creates in the lives of the sharecropper families has far-reaching personal consequences. The storm sets in motion a series of events that lead to shattered relationships, chance romances, violent confrontations, and even murder. This novel is an example of the blending of Southern fiction and the art of magical realism. The author, himself the son of an Arkansas sharecropper, has first-hand knowledge of that long-ago time and place. He knows these sharecroppers: their speech, their habits, and the unwritten code of honor which guided their lives. These elements are combined to weave a fascinating and sometimes humorous tale of love, tragedy, suspense, and hope.
