Eric B. Martin’s sweeping and highly praised debut novel of young love and family feuds lays bare the new race and class wars of a swiftly changing South. By turns lyrical and brutal, Luck echoes with the voices of unexpected characters: the self-assured musings of Hermelinda Salmeron; local wise guy Harvey Dickerson philosophizing from beyond the grave; and a chorus of the county’s consciousness at Eddie’s Bar-N-Q.
Eric B. Martin grew up in Maine, studied in North Carolina and Texas, and lives in San Francisco. MacAdam/Cage will publish his third novel in 2006.
“A marvelously wrought story out of the American heartland, one told with originality, a marvelous style and a generous spirit.”
