About this product
- DescriptionDavid Binder is a young, successful writer living in Chicago and suffering from writer s block. He stares at the blank page, and the blank page stares back until inspiration strikes in the form of a ghost story that captivated him as a child. With his pregnant wife and young daughter in tow, he sets out to explore the myth of Virginia Beale, Faery Queen of the Haunted Dell. But as his investigation takes him deeper and deeper into the legacy of blood and violence that casts its shadow over the old Beale farm, Binder finds himself obsessed with a force that s as wicked as it is seductive. A stirring literary rendition of Tennessee s famed Curse of the Bell Witch, Little Sister Death skillfully toes the line between Southern Gothic and horror, and further cements William Gay s legacy as t only one of the South s finest writers, but among the best that American literature has to offer.
- Author BiographyBorn in Tennessee in 1939, William Gay began writing at fifteen and wrote his first novel at twenty-five, but didn t begin publishing until well into his fifties. He worked as a TV salesman, in local factories, did construction, hung sheetrock, and painted houses to support himself. He preferred to sit in a kitchen chair at the edge of the woods with a spiral-bound notebook on his knee, writing in his peculiar scrawling longhand. His works include The Long Home, Provinces of Night, I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down, Wittgenstein s Lolita, and Twilight. His work has been adapted for the screen twice, That Evening Sun (2009)and Bloodworth (2010). Most recently, his debut novel has been optioned for film. He died in 2012.
