Everett plays with the reader as much as with form in the work. There’s also a woman who seeks an apprenticeship with a painter, claiming she’s his daughter; a contractor named Murphy who can’t tell the difference between the two brothers who have hired him; and via Murphy’s troubled dreams, Nat Turner, who imagines the life of William Styron.
