“Perfume River: A Novel”
Author: Robert Olen Butler
Publisher: Atlantic Monthly Press
Price: $25.00 (Hardcover)
“Perfume River” is, pardon the pun, a confluence of several themes that Robert Olen Butler, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1993 for “A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain,” has explored in previous works and is as smart and eloquent as anything he’s done before.
