“A character as conflicted as J.D. Salinger’s Holden Caulfield of Catcher in the Rye comes to life in a world as gritty as Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. If your heart was broken for Karl Childers in Sling Blade; if you believed in the simple wisdom of Forrest Gump, Sundown in Muskogee is a magic carpet to that other world.”
