Moments of light by Fred Chappell( Book )

'Moments of Light' proves that the mythic powers of the balladeer and the story teller survive even in this fragmented and unmysterious day. In eleven stories gathered here, Fred Chappell engages and entertrains our minds and sends us away singing in our hearts, more knowing, more understanding of ourselves

Sugar cage by Connie May Fowler( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first novel explores the stickily enduring bonds of love. Nine characters speak in alternating chapters: a reluctant psychic; a selfish, philandering husband; a sensitive, eccentric one; a finicky undertaker; a young soldier; an unhappy little girl; a Haitian migrant; and two widows, one merry, one grief stricken. This unlikely cast inhabits a narrative spanning 30 years. Some, like Soleil Marie, a sugarcane laborer, or Inez, who can't avoid seeing the future, speak with startling vividness. Others, like the child Luella, are less convincing. All are trapped behind the sweetly poisoned bars of the "sugar cage"--a "sign" in the dregs of one character's glass. Inez spots it: "bars glistening like white sand," a sure sign "she was going to let love eat her up." Runaway emotions devour some, others struggle to both love and survive. A Southern gothic tale, magically imaginative, yet harshly real. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/91
