Throughout this sprawling family saga, Smith captures music-making at its purest
and show biz at its most disingenuous, offering fascinating glimpses of old-time
medicine shows, radio barn dances, sleazy rockabilly joints, primitive recording
sessions, the Grand Ole Opry, crass country commercialism—even a phantom
backwoods fiddler. . . . Pleasures of all sizes and emotional hues abound in The
Devil's Dream and, country music fan or not, you won't want this ambitious and ...

Wedding So ends the tale of Germain's marriage, as that "expert plowman"
himself told it to me. Forgive me, kind reader, for not having managed to translate
it better — because the plain old-fashioned language of the region that "I sing" (
as people used to say) does indeed need a translation. These people speak a
dialect that may be too French for us; since the days of Rabelais and Montaigne,1

Wallace, even the animals appear to be on the Devil's side.2 The wolf plays his
stereotypic villain's role by "hatching a plot" against Big-Foot. In the tall tale
storyteller's tradition, the old Indian fighter soon begins to suspect "foul play" and
"mischief" from the "devils" who are running in a huge gang. The wolves trap him
in the trunk of an old oak tree where he fights them off all night with his knife. Like
all devils, they melt away into the chaparral with the light of day. In other tales,

An empty phrase, a silly phrase. It was shouted by every newspaper, it was
thundered from the pulpit, the Superintendent of Public Instruction placarded it in
every school-house in the land, the War Department inscribed it upon the flag.
And every man who failed to shout it or who was silent, was proclaimed a traitor
— none but those others were patriots. To be a patriot, one had to say, and keep
on saying, "Our Country, right or wrong," and urge on the little war. Have you not
perceived ...

He was a huge name in country music—among his artists at Curb Records were
Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and lo Dee Messina. With Ross and Curb attached to the
project, my agents went out to sell the script. They got nowhere. Potential buyers
didn't know what to do with it. Oldtimey Hank Williams country music? Say what?
A tear-jerking celebration of love and America? Huh? By the guy who wrote Basic
Instinct and Showgirls? Oh boy. Where was the sex? (There was no sex.) I went ...

Although Palalu was selected as a country to avoid for travellers for several years
now, there were still many people lined up to board the plane. Many of them
looked like they were returning to their home country. For the general public,
Palalu was a country with an unstable government, to put it lightly. Every time it
was mentioned on evening news, it was either about yet another failed coup or
occasionally a successful one. There were numerous warring factions within the
country, ...

Cragg blood. I've a notion it's easier to stand the devils in the country here, than
in the city where you live." Nan didn't know whether to be amused or angry. "Yet
you tried to run away once," she reminded Ingua, "and it was Mary Louise who
stopped you. You told me of this only an hour ago. "Didn't I say the devils pick on
me sometimes?" demanded the girl. "An' Mary Louise was right. She fought the
