TournamentUnknown - 2001
"Tom Parker's pleasant voice creates believable characters who metamorphose from words to reality with regional accents, interesting intonations, and antique expressions." -AudioFile. "Foote, like Faulkner, sees the Deep South with an unblinking eye." -L'Express. Hugh Bart, living as a farmer in the post-bellum South, confronts life's problems as told in a clever mixture of rich language and flashbacks, in this, the successful first novel by Shelby Foote, a major Southern writer whose masterpiece is "The Civil War: a narrative". In Tournament many of the remarkable characters from Jordan County, Foote's fictional Mississippi Delta county, come upon the literary scene for the first time. Louis Rubin, in his introductory essay on "Tournament", finds major Proustian resonances and predicts lines along which Foote's future novels will develop.
