Example text

Aunt Willa Bristow was up on the porch, he said, but she never came down to retrieve her, never even came out from the shadows hard up against the house, and he said she danced as tireless and light as a child all across the yard and up onto the stump and off again, and she brought the hem of the bedsheet up under her nose and played out what Daddy called the siege of Thebes, taking all of the voices herself and making the likes of a swordfight by beating together a hickory branch and a piece of a staub.

Poor Mrs. Browner, who was as plain and normal as a bar of soap, didn’t see it coming and never forgave herself for it, but Daddy says she probably saw less of the sheriff than we did what with the reporters and the newsmen and that one fellow from a national crime magazine who wouldn’t let off hounding him until he got an interview. And Mrs. Browner said he just came in one night for supper after not coming home hardly at all since the stabbing, and she told him she’d cook him up a quarter chicken with potatoes and green beans, which he was very fond of, and she said he went off to the bathroom and drew himself a tub full of water while she boiled the potatoes and the beans and started the chicken baking.

Woodley dug up than Eustace, Annie, and Cora were. The Epperson sisters weren’t triplets; one of them wasn’t even an Epperson. That was Cora and she was her Momma’s brother’s child, which made her a Greene. Mr. Epperson had taken her in after Mrs. Epperson’s sister-in-law had died and Mrs. Epperson’s brother had turned out to be no count. Cora must have known all this at one time, since she was five when it happened, and Eustace certainly knew it, but Cora told Mr. Woodley it was a baldfaced lie and Eustace said yes indeed it was a baldfaced lie and Annie said it absolutely had to be a baldfaced lie.
