Mississippi native and onetime Greenwood resident Tiffany Quay Tyson took the Southern lit world by storm in 2015 with her novel THREE RIVERS, set here in the Delta. Now she returns to the store with THE PAST IS NEVER, A compelling addition to contemporary Southern Gothic fiction, deftly weaving together local legends, magical realism, and the search for a missing child. Siblings Bert, Willet, and Pansy know better than to go swimming at the old rock quarry. According to their father, it's the Devil's place, a place that's been cursed and forgotten. But Mississippi Delta summer days are scorching hot and they can't resist cooling off in the dark, bottomless water. Until the day six-year-old Pansy vanishes. Not drowned, not lost . . . simply gone. When their father disappears as well, Bert and Willet leave their childhoods behind to try and hold their broken family together. Perfect for fans of Flannery O'Connor and Dorothy Allison, THE PAST IS NEVER is an atmospheric, haunting story of myths, legends, and the good and evil we carry in our hearts. Join us for a reception at 5:30, followed by speaking and signing.
