Fernanda EberstadtTilghman unfolds his harsh lesson with precision, delicacy and startling humor. When he's writing about the inner life of Tuckertown, you forget he's white. When he writes about the orchardist's wife's worries about her daughters, you forget he's a man. He's equally persuasive describing the procedures of modern dairy farming and the economic fallout from the Civil War. The Right-Hand Shore is the dark, magisterial creation of a writer with an uncanny feel for the intersections of place and character in American history.
