Summary (From the publisher):

The Whitelaw patriarch, Sunny Jim, exerts his perverse control even in death, by means of a will that binds the family fortune to a marriage that ought to be rent asunder. The charms of this particular son-in-law, lately released from prison, are potent, especially as regards his estranged wife.

Language: English

Blurbs:
  • "Novelist and essay-writer McGuane assembles a large cast for a small but satisfying story...These awfully stretched story lines wander perilously close to Florida baroque, but McGuane always knows when to back off...Exhilarating: like a good run in bad weather." Kirkus Reviews
  • "On the surface, McGuane's prose is all moral unflappability, but underneath there's clearly a nostalgia for a less self-indulgent culture, one in which people kept to their (preferably stoic) codes." Publishers Weekly
  • "Peopled with quirky, humorous, and sometimes downright dangerous characters, this novel is absorbing, meaningful, and brilliantly written." Library Journal
