Description

Product Description

Now back in print from the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Girls.

It was in 1833 or ''34 that Moses Bailey brought young Kate Malone down to Cold Spring Holler to be his wife. But Moses, wanting to become a preacher like his daddy was, left Kate time and again to look after the kids while he went out in search of a sign from God. Though he warned them about the evils of playing the fiddle, a kind of music he likened to the devil''s own laughter, it passed the time for his bride and children, and soon became not just a way of life for the Baileys, but a curse that would last for generations.

Lee Smith is a great storyteller. This book was no exception. Set in the South from the Depression era, through generations to more modern times, the story is told through various members of the Bailey family and others related or who are connected somehow. My biggest criticism is with the narrators changing almost every chapter, and so many of the characters having similar names, I found it impossible to remember who they were. Plus, stories about one person''s life could be mentioned through various narrators through a brief mention, and by then I could not remember how they figured into the family.

I was forced to purchase this book for a college course. I had zero expectations as the course was a music history course (it''s a gen ed class, don''t judge), but it was actually a very well written book. The stories were engaging and very interesting, and I remember most of the book today even though it was two years ago when I took the course.

The story follows families through many generations and the common factor is music, whether it''s love for music or in some cases, hate of music. The violin was the devils instrument, etc etc.

A good read, although if you don''t have to read it and you''re not a music lover, I''d pass.

Having grown up in southern mountain country, I found that the language, attitude and culture of the characters and their communities ring true. The triumphs and failures of the human spirit make Lee Smith''s characters catch your attention and hold it through their many trials and tribulations. Thank goodness for the family tree for reference through the generations!

In addition to Lee Smith''s usual mastery of language and story, The Devil''s Dream collects mountain ballads and music never heard before, as well as composing some herself which seem integral to the characters.
The switch in voices to tell the intricate story of a family and their kin weaves a tapestry of poor in things, but rich in relationship mountain people.
This book is a must read for followers of Lee Smith and those who love mountain culture of the U.S.

Poor white trash get famous
Reviewed in the United States on June 22, 2014
I really enjoyed this book, but it''s still poor white trash who can sing. So glad they had the family tree on the inside cover or I never would have been able to keep everyone straight. Sometimes the local slang got a bit much. ''Hit'' for ''it''.

Too predictable. I realize this author''s ratings are quite good, but I felt as if I had read it all before by other authors.
