The Mansion is a novel set in the American South in the first half of the twentieth century, which traces the downfall of the Snopes, a powerful post-bellum family who control the town of Jefferson in Mississippi.
Focusing on 3 members of the family, Mink, Linda and Flem, it is a tale full of murder and revenge.
The Mansion provides a vivid portrait of the South's displaced economic landscape, dealing with rural populism, and racial and social tensions.
