Set during the epic 1927 flood of the Mississippi, The Tilted World is a fevered, swirling story that propels the reader, threatening much as the river threatens the landscape. Once again as he did in Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, Franklin has created vivid, unforgettable characters in the bootlegger and his wife and the revenuers closing in on them. In The Tilted World the river is, in many ways, the major character, always threatening the lives of the other characters. This is a book that you will want to read in a single sitting.
