The Widow and the Tree features a 500-year-old Ghosthead Oak, whose stately presence has borne witness to the rise and fall of generations, to the hopes and dreams of untold lives, and to the births and deaths of innumerable residents along coastal Alabama. So why would a widow enter a biker bar and hire a man to chainsaw the cherished landmark? আরো পড়ুন.
The Ghosthead Oak is unlike any other tree in the coastal crescent between New Orleans and Apalachicola. In this mysterious country of backwater bays and slow-running rivers, the tree was once a knee-high seedling brushed by the black boot of Spanish conquistador Hernando Cortez. Now, its massive branches spread out so long and thick they're often mistaken for dinosaur necks.

Like all serious literature, The Widow and the Tree is a marvelous and confusing little book. The book’s jacket hails Sonny Brewer as a master storyteller, which indeed he is, so firmly rooted in the southern oral tradition he makes good writing seem easy when it is anything but that. The Ghosthead Oak, with a cancerous gall like a twisted human face, has a name, while the human characters do not, a curiosity I’ll let doctors of English ponder. Consider this: when he was riled, his rage was bigger than a blue thunderhead, meaner than a coiled moccasin.
