In SHINE HAWK, Charlie Smith updates Faulkner's AS I LAY DYING and puts me in mind of Vonnegut's Billy Pilgrim (who was also unstuck in time). His viewpoint character, Billy, returns home to help a couple of old friends because Frank's little brother Jake has died alone in a trailer (alcoholism), but Billy's still in love with Frank's wife Hazel (and, truth told, with Frank). But the novel's not told strictly chronologically, though the floating in time is easy to understand.

The smith, Grame, was lighting his forge. Seeing Tovi, he strolled across. Soot had smeared the smith’s thick white beard. Ah, well, enough dismal talk. This is a new day, fresh and untainted. Good day to you, Baker, said Grame. And to you. It looks a fine one. Nary a cloud in sight. I see you have the Baron’s greys in your stalls. Spinning on his heel, the burly blacksmith strode back to his forge. The boy, Stalf, said nothing as Tovi reentered the bakery. He could see his master was deep in thought, and he had heard a little of the conversation. It was hard to believe that Fat Tovi had once worn the Red, and had taken part in the Battle of Colden Moor.

What are we but the sum of our memories? In SHINE HAWK, Charlie Smith updates Faulkner's AS I LAY DYING and puts me in mind of Vonnegut's Billy Pilgrim (who was also unstuck in time). His viewpoint character, Billy, returns home to help a couple of old friends because Frank's little brother Jake has died alone in a trailer (alcoholism), but Billy's still in love with Frank's wife Hazel (and, truth told, with Frank). But the novel's not told strictly chronologically, though the floating in time is easy to understand. The language is gorgeous, with stupendous imagery. The story is about love--eternal love, brotherly love--and faithfulness. However, if you are going to be offended by graphic sex (threesome, peeping. . . ), you'll have to decide for yourself whether you'll want to read SHINE HAWK.
