This book was great a pick for my F2F book club...I was great writing funny,moving and incredibly perceptive. I love books about the Civil Rights movement and this book was a great one to read.
Having grown up and now again living in a country where having house is still the norm, especially for 'white' expats I found this book even more interesting.
It's amazing how people coming from the same place can be so different, some so kind and loving, some ugly and cruel.
It's a wonderful book, I think it deserves all the attention it's gotten I recommend.
