Much savagery,compassion,farce,art and truth have gone into
on 30 November 1999
I thought this was a well written book. The way she used her instrument are a brutal irony, a slam-bang humor and a style of writing as balefully direct as a deathe sentence. The displaced person, the story of an outsider who desstroys the balance of life between blacks and whites on a small southern farm, has been adapted into a powerful drama for television.
