5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing, 18 Nov 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: A Thousand Acres (Paperback)
This is a provocative reworking of the King Lear myth set in the rural America of the latter half of the 20th century. The book draws you in fully to the consciousness of its narrator, Ginny, and will not let go, even after it ends.
A deep understanding of both family and the "madness" of womanhood inform this novel; it deserved the Pulitzer it won earlier this decade.
