In addition to being an award winning novelist, Harry Cauley is also an award-winning film writer, a distinguished playwright (two of his plays have appeared on Broadway), actor (appearing in over fifty plays), director, and television writer (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman).
Among the other beautifully rendered members of the family are Ben's mother Eulalie, vague, distracted, and ineffective, his sister Estella, who pines for a local sheriff's deputy she is allowed to see only in the presence of Mamu, and Uncle Josh, Mamu's reclusive younger half-brother who lives alone in a shack on a creek and provides the only culture--and respite--that Ben and Estella know.
