The third novel by cataloguer of Appalachian woe Charles Frazier, Nightwoods is slower-moving than it has any right to be, considering that it includes a Cormac McCarthy-esque single-minded killer; a pair of mute, horror-flick children; and more of the brutal, homespun prose that made Cold Mountain a quick read in spite of the page count. After that book’s surprising success, the even-more-surprising $8 million advance for Thirteen Moons, and Frazier’s maybe-less-surprising failure to meet those enormous expectations, Nightwoods takes a step back to what worked in Cold Mountain, combining Inman’s blood-soaked wanderings with Ada’s domestic drive »
