Oscar Clifton prefers to live his memories rather than his life. But when his estranged grandson comes calling after eighteen years, Oscar must face a very different version of his past. Together, what future can they make when they are so alike they can’t stand each other? Something is going to have to arouse them; something beyond the smell of sweet potato pie and the muddy blues of the Delta—something supernatural. dance of the holy ghosts is a poetic family drama that waltzes from the hilarious innocence of a childhood crush to the heartbreak of a ruined marriage. It is a memory-scape that arouses all the senses, wakes the imagination, and leaves no stone unturned.
