A stark account of the harsh struggle of the "white trash" families of the American South. For the wealthy in Greenville County, South Carolina, life is sweet, but with precarious employment, life for the poor is just one long struggle. Allison's work, "Trash" won two 1989 Lambda Literary Awards.

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)
