We’re delighted to welcome Dawn Major to FoxTale to celebrate the launch of her debut novel, THE BYSTANDERS on Saturday, April 29, 1pm. Dawn will be in conversation with bestselling author Ann Hite.
A dysfunctional family seeks a do-over in a small town, in The Bystanders, but in addition to packing their personal demons they discover the locals aren’t so welcoming.
“The Bystanders is a deliciously dark novel. Major created a cast of characters that are at home in a Flannery O’Connor story. Readers will not put this book down until they finish the last page.” –Ann Hite, award winning author of Haints On Black Mountain
The Bystanders is a dark coming-of-age story set in the 1980s when big hair was big, and MTV ruled. In a quiet town of annual picnics and landscapes, the Samples’s rundown trailer and odd behaviors aren’t charming the locals. The Bystanders pays homage to Americana, its small-town eccentricities, and the rural people of the Northern Mississippi Delta region of Southeast Missouri, a unique area of the country where people still speak Paw Paw French and honor Old World traditions.
