"This is a story of youth, its joys and adventures, its pains and battles, its loves and friendships. Kay has come up with a deliciously nostalgic look at the whole experience of Growing Up."
—Christian Science Monitor
First published in 1976, The Year the Lights Came On was Terry Kay’s debut novel. Revolving around the electrification of rural northeast Georgia shortly after the end of World War II, the novel has become a classic coming-of-age story. Kay, now an acclaimed writer with an international following, has reread the novel with the eyes of a seasoned storyteller. Cutting here and adding there, Kay has enriched an already highly comical and poignant work. The Year the Lights Came On is ready to find its place in the hearts of a new generation.
