Summary
Allison spikes her critically acclaimed first novel, a National Book Award nominee, with pungent characters, and saturates it with a sense of its setting.--Publishers Weekly.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Although Lamb's protagonist is stalked by tragedy, she proves resilient. Similarly, Ruth Anne Boatwright is a study in courageousness as she deals with poverty and the sexual abuse of her stepfather in Allison's amazingly accomplished debut. A recent film (with the same title) directed by Angelica Huston was based on this novel."
