Like a southern John Irving novel - I loved the characters!
The worst drought in recorded history has left the small rural town of Havensburg, Kentucky in isolation and despair. Reserves are drying up, local officials have failed to enforce water-rationing regulations, and the relentless heat is causing panic and unrest among the town's citizens.
The Drought follows an eclectic cast of characters through a volatile two weeks of greed, lust, and violence, leading to an inevitable and extraordinary climax no one will see coming.
And it all begins with Willie Strasbourg stealing a pair of underwear from the girl next door . . .
