The Persia Cafe, a critically acclaimed novel which was a Main Selection of the Literary Guild in hardcover, is a story of love, betrayal, and murder in a small Mississippi River town. John Grisham praised it as "a haunting story; beautifully written, finely plotted."

Fannie Leary works at the local cafe, trying to hold her own in a world of low expectations and dreaming that her cooking will be her ticket out of Persia. But when a young black boy suddenly disappears and the town erupts in violence, she is the only one who can piece the story together.

An examination of the ordinariness of racism and what people will do out of loyalty, The Persia Cafe presents a fresh voice in Southern fiction.
