For anyone who has ever felt the contempt of a self-righteous world, this book will resonate within you like a gospel choir. For anyone who hasn't, this book will be an education (Barbara Kingsolver)
Dorothy Allison has an elegantly unpretentious style, raw intensity, and a great big heart. In Bastard out of Carolina she tells a horrific story without malice or self-pity. I read her work with admiration and respect (Blanche McCrary Boyd)
