This is the tale of Miss Amelia, gaunt and lonely owner of a small-town store; and how she squandered her love on Cousin Lymon, the little strutting hunchback who turned the store into a cafe; and how her rejected husband, the meanest man in town, came back and stole the hunchback's heart; and, of the gargantuan fight that followed. This is a miniature epic with the melancholy atmosphere of a ballad.About the Author:
