Summary
"This Crooked Way presents the life of Amos Dudley, a self-made planter of the early 1900s Mississippi Delta, obsessed with the secret vision that he is especially blessed by God. Dudley's delusion proves morbid as he pursues the mere signs and symbols of grace - land, marriage to the genteel Ary Morgan, a son - while driving himself into an isolation devoid of intimacy with a single human being. His moral crookedness, ingeniously related through the novel's crooked telling, comes startlingly full circle in the end, when connectedness with others reveals the surer way to spiritual salvation."--BOOK JACKET
