Psyanky Eggs

These are a traditional craft in Ukraine, with a history of thousands of years. The method is similar to batik - patterns are drawn on the egg with wax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were covered up at each stage. The symbols and colors used are rich in meaning; many pre-date the arrival of Christianity, and have had Christian interpretations layered on afterward.

Page 1:
Two things don't happen very often in Hillston, North Carolina. We don't get much snow and we hardly ever murder one another. Suicide is more our style; we're a polite, college town, and our lives are sheltered by old trees.
Page 47:
Upstairs, just before eleven, Graham and Dickey Pope, dragging two policemen along with them, rammed into the front room like bears after a cub, and yelled at us to give them back Preston. They swore their baby brother had been at home drinking beer and watching the basketball game on television with them every minute the night of the murder.
