    John Gregory Brown
John Gregory Brown's award-winning debut novel, Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery was hailed as "the stuff of which classics are made" (Los Angeles Times). With his second novel, The Wrecked, Blessed Body of Shelton Lafleur, John Gregory Brown reaffirms his standing as one of the most gifted and inventive new writers to emerge from the South. It is New Orleans during the Depression, and Shelton Lafleur is eight years old, a black boy mysteriously adopted by a wealthy young white woman confined to her bed. One day he tumbles from the top branches of a live oak tree, crippling himself: for life. But sweet deliverance arrives in the form of a wily man named Minou, who takes Shelton into his lively family and under his worldly tutelage. Not only does Minou teach . Shelton the means of survival in a South deeply divided by race, but he holds the secret: of Shelton's birth and ultimately the source of Shelton's redemption.   show more
