    [synopsis] => West of New Orleans among a few small Gulf islands lies the Isle aux Chiens, a tiny, impoverished strip of land burdened by intolerable heat and roaming packs of wild dogs. Here a handful of Creole families eke out a meager existence by fishing the Gulf waters. Such is the fate of Al Landry and his seventeen-year-old daughter, Annie. All Annie has ever known is the wild sea, but she longs for other people and places, including the glamor of life in the Big Easy. When a cruel, handsome man from the city passes through, he kindles Annie's fantasies for a life beyond the island. Soon, the young girl faces a decision: remain planted in the predictable life she has always known, or toss it all aside for her dreamed-of adventure.   The Hard Blue Sky is Grau's debut novel, establishing her as a chronicler of bayou life and the complexities of the Deep South's most impoverished corners.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Shirley Ann Grau, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
