About The Book
An archetypal American story of self-discovery, set against the turmoil of post-Civil War America, Sweet Song tells the story of the mixed race son of a white landowner and a black house servant. Leon, raised black but an outcast from both cultures, fi nds himself suddenly on his own-and passing for white. Wrestling with a divided heritage in a world where honesty, even with friends, might prove fatal, he falls in with dispossessed thieves, mill workers, saloon keepers, musicians, businessmen, thugs, freedom loving idealists and malevolent racists-a vivid panorama from America’s past. This tender, raw, provocative novel speaks from the heart about where we’ve come from and who we are. Praise for Persun’s previous work: “When Persun writes of man/nature, he writes of us-not just to us-and shows us images we can’t simply blink away.”- Robert Fulton, author and essayist The Witness Tree: “Persun manages to suspend disbelief as he weaves an imaginative tale exploring the complex relationship between art and madness.”- Tim W. Brown, Small Press Review Giver of Gifts: ..”.a beguiling portrait of a dying man who discovers romance in truth and the joys of living in the promise of death.”- Adrianne Harun, author of The King of Limbo and Other Stories
