Oh, the questions we seek; the questions we fail to answer. The propensity for violence – environmental or genetic? What are you willing to do to protect what is yours – family – or that which you soiled your soul for? Women like Marilyn refuse to pause in contemplation. For, to pause is to provide ample opportunity for the rat to get away.

A whole lot of Southern & more than a little wicked~ DANCING ALONG THE FRINGES TO THE SIGN OF SILENCE.
WARNING: Graphic Content; Murder; Deplorable Language.
THE FRINGES is Southern Gothic through and through. A subgenre of Gothic fiction in American literature, the story takes place in the American South. The elements of deeply flawed, disturbing & eccentric characters, hoodoo, decayed & derelict settings, grotesque situations, & sinister events stemming from poverty, alienation, crime & violence are knitted like a finely spun web.
REVIEW: “Put down that Harlan Coben or James Patterson book you’re reading and instead pick up this novel by Elizabeth Mozley.
Why? We read to escape, but we also read to connect with characters who are a little bit like us. The distance that words written on a page provide allow us to experience excitement and danger vicariously.
There is plenty of treachery in this novel, and there is an abundance of love. There is something about stories set in the American South like this one is.
Like any good Southern Gothic there are graveyards and bastard children and nostalgia for the past. Through the five women around which this story unfolds, Mozley examines the values of the South such as loyalty and deeply ingrained decorum.
That is not to say that all is well in Memphis. With the mix of strong women and coarse men, violence is never far away and the bonds of loyalty fray. There are entanglements aplenty with the usual culprit at the center…money and sex.
The passages of dialogue ring true and the pacing of the story keeps you turning the pages. There is even travel to a place far away from Tennessee–both distance and culturally–that came as a surprise.
If the old adage to write what you know is true, Mozley knows a thing or two…
I think this book is worth your time reading…compelling dialogue makes an interesting movie.
So what are you waiting for Hollywood? Option this book. It will be a hit on Netflix…
Seriously, order it today.” Don Jacobson @BigSurfDon

Gustave Flaubert & I would have gotten along swimmingly. And, all the while, I would have been tugging at his sleeve, whispering, “But your life IS beautiful.”
Flaubert wrote to Chevalier,
“My life, which in my dreams is so beautiful, so poetic, so vast, so filled with love, will turn out to be like everyone else’s: monotonous, sensible, stupid. I’ll attend law school, be admitted to the bar and end up as a respectable assistant district attorney in a small provincial town such as Yvetot or Dieppe.. Poor madman, who dreamt of glory, love, laurels, journeys, the Orient.’
THE ART OF TRAVEL, Alain De Botton
For Pete’s sake, the man lived in Rouen!
“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.”
“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.”
