Product Details


"What Garrison Keillor has done for Lake Wobegon, Edgerton has done for Listre, creating a place of battered charms and dog-eared lore."
-"The Washington Post
"Here, evil comes to sleepy Listre, N.C., circa 1950, in the form of a stranger with a pencil-thin mustache and a trunkful of dirty movies. Listre is the kind of rustic crossroads where the most exciting event in years was a collision between a mule and a pickup truck, where boys slip over to the Gulf station for a Nehi and a peek at the pinup calendar, and where everybody knows everybody else's secrets.

"Hilarious . . . Wonderful . . . Edgerton engagingly captures small-town America."
-"Atlanta Journal & Constitution
"As much the story of a man who brings random badness into a good place as it is the story of a boy's search for his own salvation."
"-"Mark Childress
" The New York Times Book Review
"His best book since "Walking Across Egypt.""
"-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"

"-Raleigh News and Observer"
-"Newark Star-Ledger "
"Pitch the revival tent and sing hallelujah! Clyde Edgerton has returned to Listre . . . and for his legions of fans, that's cause for rejoicing. . . . "Where Trouble Sleeps "features an array of the wonderfully human, often quirky characters we've come to expect. . . . As always, Edgerton skewers the hypocritical and sanctimonious with hilarious deftness. . . . Beneath the comic flourishes lies
