John WebbIn The Peddler's Grandson Cohen writes with a sensitivity that belies his lack of sentimentality. He forsakes moss-draped Southern romanticism for a detached, scrutinizing eye. Cohen inspires compassion with his drama of the gifted child torn between a distaste for Bible Belt anti-intellectualism and a need to assimilate among the good ol' boys. You walk away from the The Peddler's Grandson with a sense of the importance of making a separate peace, an understanding that a person can be defined not by how he fits into the world, but by how he stands defiant in the face of a world apart.
