In his new novel, Yarbrough intertwines James Meredith’s enrollment at Ole Miss with a town’s not-so-admirable response. Decades later, local historian and high-school teacher Luke May struggles with his father’s involvement in Meredith’s enrollment. May also initiates his family’s crumbling. Being a historian, or perhaps simply by being human, May is incapable of forgetting, which he recognizes as both blessing and curse.
