Summary
Convinced that he is cursed after the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, 20-year-old Robert Chatham, who, constantly followed by trouble, has lost his will to live, finally shakes his demons until he is forced to make an impossible choice
Summary
"When I was a baby child, they put the jinx on me," explains Robert Lee Chatham, a young African-American man from rural Mississippi. Everything he's experienced so far in his short life has lead him to believe he's marked by the Devil -- from his mother's mental illness to his brother's lynching at the hands of a mob. Even Robert's first kiss (with a white girl named Dora) comes just before the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, a disaster that then robs him of everything he holds dear in one fell swoop. In the aftermath of that devastating event, Robert journeys across the deep South, encountering dangers and numerous eccentric characters as he strives to outrun what he's sure is his terrible fate. - Description by Gillian Speace
