In his first work of fiction in a decade, Allan Gurganus returns to the mythic site of his immortal novel Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All. Time has passed; the Internet has arrived; but the daily human dramas in Falls, North Carolina prove that old habits die hard. A banker's daughter seeks the child she was forced to relinquish at birth ...The disappearance of a star high school student sends ripples through the town, creating a cult led by her stricken mother ...The friendship between two married men is tested by a devastating flood. Local Souls is a universal tale of gigantic hopes battling small-town conventions - a dark comedy of adultery, obsession and incest, told with affection and piercing insight.
Allan Gurganus, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and a Guggenheim Fellowship, has written four other works of fiction. Adaptations have earned him four Emmys. Gurganus lives in a North Carolina village; his desk overlooks a colonial cemetery known to be haunted.
