really liked it
Read from January 30 to February 17, 2011

gritty, "true-to-life", hillbilly semi-saga about a man who returns from so cal back to his family home in the ozarks. the beautiful river has been damned and lake is full of jet skis (one character calls it the big sewer or something like that), all the old folks are dead and their farms have been turned into 2nd homes on 10 acre lots, the main businesses in town are strip clubs and drinking (and meth), love is hard to find, and kind of complicated when found, I LOVE POETS WHO WRITE NOVELS.
