Baker & Taylor Recently paroled from prison, Ivy Paret settles in with fellow ex-convict Buddy Riordan and Riordan's family on a sprawling ranch in Montana and becomes drawn into a tragic conflict involving the family and their neighbors
Blackwell North Amer The novel's title is the name of the song that Iry Paret - a honky-tonk musician, Korean vet, and ex-con wants to write to hold his memories of a "more uncomplicated time," before the war, before prison. The book opens the day thirty-year-old Iry leaves Louisiana's Angola state penitentiary, after serving two years for manslaughter, and follows him to Montana, where he hopes to stay cool and out of trouble by working hard on a ranch owned by the father of his prison pal, Buddy Riordan. Iry finds the fresh start he seeks, joins a weekend band, and even falls in love. But the Riordan family's problems deal Iry a new sort of trouble with some ultimately tragic consequences.
