Description
"A big, rich, satisfying, old-fashioned hunk of a book . . . part comedy, part tragedy, and thoroughly satisfying." — Chicago Tribune Book World A Texas family as big and brash as their home state, the Renshaws are united by their fierce loyalty to one another and their ruthlessness in destroying anyone who threatens their interests. When the Renshaw matriarch, Edwina, takes to her deathbed, her ten children are summoned home to stand vigil. Past humiliations and long-simmering resentments soon boil to the surface—a son's forbidden love affair destroyed by his imperious mother, a daughter's dutiful attentions greeted with nothing but disdain. But the most painful wound of all is the absence of Kyle, Edwina's favorite son and the only member of the family to leave Texas. What drove him away, and can his siblings get him home in time to see his mother before she dies? As the ties that bind the indomitable Renshaws stretch and fray, Proud Flesh builds to a stunning climax of passion and violence. It is an unforgettable story, and one of William Humphrey's finest. This ebook features an illustrated biography of William Humphrey including rare photos form the author's estate.
