Verlag: JOHN F BLAIR PUBL, 253 Seiten, L=235mm, B=161mm, H=32mm, Gew.=644gr, [GR: I-FC - Fiction - General], Gebunden Fire in the Rock is the story of two young men, Bo Fisher and Pollo Templeton, white and black, coming of age in the red dirt South of the 1950s. It's summertime, and they are sixteen, with free use of a pickup truck and the constant company of a carefree, long-legged girl named Mae Maude Snoddy. But this is also the heyday of Jim Crow, and what at first seems an idyllic summer turns dark, violent, infected by the letter of the law, the fear and small-mindedness of the times, and the weight of the past kept hidden.<P>Ten years later, the ground has changed again, and for Bo and Pollo to remain friends, they will have to take their shared histories in hand, and come to terms with events that continue to haunt them. A moving and thoughtful book, Fire in the Rock is as much about how we see history as it is about a particular time and place, and it's filled with all the subtleties and soft ground there is to be walked around the issues of race and human nature.

In the summer of '56, in a small southern town, sixteen-year-old Bo Fisher thought he had it made. With an easy job, the use of a truck, and plenty of free time to spend with lovely, long-legged Mae Maude and contagiously energetic Pollo, the season seemed to stretch before him like a dream. For a preacher's son, it was a startling whiff of independence: a rare opportunity to hang around people his parents didn't pick out for him. And though he had to mind the rules of propriety, Bo didn't think twice about befriending Pollo, who just so happened to be black. Of course, not everyone was so open-minded. After a terrible incident cuts short the youthful carelessness of the summer, Bo assumed he would never see Pollo or Mae Maude again. But ten years later, trouble brings the two men together once more-older, wiser, changed. And in order to save the future for one of them, the haunting events of that time long ago must be unearthed. contemporary,genre fiction,historical,humanities,literary,literature,literature and fiction,political,textbooks Humanities, Novello Festival Press
