In Summerlin, North Carolina, it is-quite literally-a race to the finish. Glenn and Laura Bales lie dying in the same house, and although Laura is more interested in her Whitman's Sampler chocolates, and Glenn in whatever happened to his first wife, Evelyn, their children have their eyes unswervingly fixed on the inheritance. Who will get the money, and what it will mean for this unusual little Southern community is a richly comic novel about endings.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

In Memory of Junior is a larky, down-home chronicle of deaths foretold and retold. Clyde Edgerton has spun a sunny, funny anthology, a long way from Spoon River.” New York Times
“Edgerton again expertly conducts a chorus of ornery individuals in this prime example of entertaining, down-home Southern fiction…Edgerton expertly balances twenty minor and major characters in this highly entertaining novel about a dispute over an inheritance in a North Carolina town.” Publishers Weekly
“Edgerton’s characters are irresistible, his sense of humor is a blessing.” Booklist
“The humor here is wry and more restrained than in Walking across Egypt, the tone more somber…but Edgerton is the new master of Southern family tales." Library Journal
“An American treasure…Edgerton’s a master of the old-fashioned American art of tale spinning. His literary line goes back straight as an arrow to the likes of Sherwood Anderson and Mark Twain.” San Diego Union-Tribune, praise for the author
