A New York Times Bestselling Author

Written in evocative prose, The Jealous Kind is an atmospheric coming-of-age story set in 1952 Texas, as the Korean War rages. As Aaron Holland Broussard undergoes his harrowing evolution from boy to man, we can’t help but recall the inspirational and curative power of first love and how far we would go to protect it.


Customer Reviews

“What brings the myth-laden story to life is Burke's lyrical prose and his ability to use description to mirror emotion. That and what is perhaps the best last paragrapgh in this author's landmark career.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Burke has a hit with this dark, atmospheric story.”
