Product Details


“As close to flawless as any reader could ask for and any writer could hope for and aspire to . . . The living language Allison has created is as exact and innovative as the language of To Kill a Mockingbird and The Catcher in the Rye . . . Simply stunning.” 
—The New York Times Book Review

“A hell of a writer – tough and loose, clear and compassionate.”
The Village Voice

“Compulsively readable . . . Allison can make an ordinary moment transcendent with her sensuous mix of kitchen-sink realism and down-home drawl.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Tough, plainspoken, and thoroughly unsentimental.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“This book will resonate within you like a gospel choir.”
Barbara Kingsolver
