Next up in the book club: Dorothy Allison, Bastard Out of Carolina
“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.”
