The Millionaires, with its wry, sophisticated narrative voice, a voice in full control, is the best, most fully accomplished new novel I have read in perhaps three years.</p> Mon, 09 Feb 2009 20:50:00 +0000 Don Noble 1718 at http://apr.org The Millionaires: A Novel of the New South, by Inman Majors Wonderdog http://apr.org/post/wonderdog <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-535434c6754b7-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-535434c6754b7-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="535434c6754b7-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/national/local-national-456756.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>The protagonist of Inman Majors' second novel, <i>Wonderdog</i>, is Devaney "Dev" Degraw, who is an unhappy, and at present unsuccessful, attorney in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and also the son of the governor of Alabama.
