Eric B. Martin’s sweeping and highly praised debut novel of young love and family feuds lays bare the new race and class wars of a swiftly changing south. By turns lyrical and brutal, 'Luck' echoes with the voices of unexpected characters: the self-assured musings of Hermelinda Salmeron; local wise guy Harvey Dickerson philosophizing from beyond the grave; and a chorus of the county’s consciousness at Eddie’s Bar-N-Q.

Good Book!Very Good book.Good book except for the first chapter.
Tension in a Southern tobacco town, as two cultures clash. The characters are complex, no villians or heroes (though there is an amazing heroine in Hermalinda) because the writer creates flesh and blood people caught in circumstance. There is humor, conviction and feeling in this tense,thoughtful novel that the reader can't put down until the explosive, dramatic ending which knocks one's proverbial socks off.
