Yonder Stands Your Orphan by Barry Hannah
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Yonder Stands Your Orphan is an electrifying story about how the denizens of a lakeside community in Mississippi are beset by madness, murder and sin in the form of Man Mortimer. Mortimer, a creature of the casinos who looks like the dead country singer Conway Twitty, is a killer who has turned mean and sick. He visits upon the town by Eagle Lake wreckage of biblical proportions. Yonder Stands Your Orphan is an hysterical and unremittingly gothic account of obsession, violence, sex and religion in America's Deepest South.
