The daughter of an aspiring Southern actress and a writer of great ambition and pride, Rollin will be forced to find her own way in a dazzling but often unreliable world peopled by artists and patrons and their various supporters, the most crucial of whom are two men -- her father, Lad Thompkins, so lost in his imaginary world that he often cannot see his wife and child standing beside him, for whom impossibly high standards and lavish critical attention will never lead to commensurate financial success- and Douglas Kipps, Lads Harvard classmate and Rollins charming, devoted, tragically glamorous godfather, a man whose shirts are so expensive and beautiful that women in Texas wait for his shirttails for their quilts (there was a part of him on every bed in Texas, he liked to say) and whose legacy will haunt Rollin for years.And as we follow Rollin, as she navigates between broken homes and broken dreams, growing into a young woman of accomplishment and understanding, we are caught up in Sarah Gaddiss assured, almost painterly book, her details added to details, accumulating with telling, astonishing effect.

A debut novel, Swallow Hard announces the arrival of an exceptionally attentive and gifted young writer.
