" " William Styron's stunning debut: a classic portrait of one Southern family's tragic spiral into destruction " First published to wide critical acclaim in 1951, Lie Down in Darkness centers on the Loftis family--Milton and Helen and their daughters, Peyton and Maudie. The story, told through a series of flashbacks on the day of Peyton's funeral, is a powerful depiction of a family doomed by its failure to forget and its inability to love. " Written in masterful prose, Styron's debut novel offers unflinching insight into the ineradicable bonds of place and family. The story of Milton, Helen, and their children reveals much about life's losses and disappointments. Lie Down in Darkness, poignant and compelling, is a classic of modern American literature. " This ebook features a new illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives. " ".
