In A Stained White Radiance, James Lee Burke depicts the power and the perils of white supremacy and racism in the deep south. The novel centers around the life of protagonist, John Grady Cole, who, after being falsely accused of a crime he didn't commit, is forced to flee Alabama and travel to the small town of Maycomb County, where he finds himself entrenched in a racist society. Burke's nuanced writing allows readers to understand the nuances of Cole's experience, from the ways in which the townspeople ostracize him to the ways in which they use his race to manipulate him. The novel is a powerful exploration of the ways in which hate and bigotry can have devastating consequences.; 8vo; 305 pages.
