Jo-Ann Costa - The Bequest of Big Daddy

Colfax Avenue: Jo-Ann Costa will read from and sign her debut novel The Bequest of Big Daddy (Koehler), the story of a man born to Southern aristocracy then reduced to peasantry, who spawns an empire of outcasts, heroes and heroines—among them a great-granddaughter who is determined to learn the truth about her kin’s hushed, painful past. From a Reconstruction-era turpentine and logging industry to the decaying ruins of a doomed plantation with its dying social system, The Bequest of Big Daddy is evocative of all that was wrong in the post-Civil War South.
