Two sentences from Tiger in the Honeysuckle by Elliott Chaze:

page 8


That night the Negroes had a pep rally at St. Joseph’s Methodist Church on East Seventh Street in the edge of The Bottoms, near Rebel Pine Products Co., Inc.  The smell from Rebel Pine, powerful and sweet-sour, filled the neighborhood and the inside of the church reeked with it, the odor of pine stumps boiling in solvent and poles soaked in creosote.

    October 27th, 2008 at 10:47 am I was a newbie reporter in the late 60s in Hattiesburg. I wish every reporter had the opportunity to see Elliot Chaze in action. He was outrageous and scarily insightful. Why did you not mention “Tiger in the Honeysuckle,” his best civil rights era novel? Once the world “discovers” Chaze’s work, he may yet be regarded one of the 20th Century’s greatest writers. Of course I’m prejudiced since I knew the “real life” characters in his books.The above comment is from Bill Pronzini’s site.

Note: the cover on the book (above) was ‘filched’ from the internet.  The copy of this novel in my bookcase has no cover and is a first edition – thus the snapshot of my copy just showed a plain book – no title.  I’m not too fond of the book cover above.
