Three stories by the author of Sophie's Choice detail a former slave's return to his birthplace, the impact of war on personal relationships, and a mother's death, all viewed through the eyes of a youth in Tidewater, Virginia. 75,000 first printing. Tour.

In these stories - never before published in book form - William Styron focuses his unmatched talents on matters that have preoccupied him during much of his adult writing career.
Although their immediate subjects are different - a young Marine about to invade Japan in World War II remembers the role his father played in building one of the ships; a child recalls what happened when a former slave came home to die in the place where he was born; a boy describes the hot summer day on which his mother died, changing his life forever - the stories are told in the voice of the same narrator, who remembers vividly his youth in a tidewater town in Virginia.
A Tidewater Morning is written with the power and distinction of a writer who occupies a preeminent place in modern American literature.
