The Oyster Dancer

by Kevin Scrantz

The Oyster Dancer Synopsis

A lyrical, satirical look at race, religion and sex in the new South. New Orleans, 1913: After running afoul of religion and a razor, Cora embarks on a bizarre odyssey into Cajun country to work for Miss Godd, an eccentric with a dark past of her own. Against the backdrop of a sleepy bayou town and the secret lives of its people, Cora settles into a new life until her past comes home to roost with tragic consequences. A scarred stripper at war with God...A voodoo priestess in a funk...A menopausal belle trying to resurrect her dead lover...A lonely killer who hugs his victims to death...An unforgettable cast of characters in an irreverent tour de force! It's certainly an enjoyable read, which thrives with the bawdy character of New Orleans. Rosemary Davidson, Bloomsbury Publishing
