it was amazing
bookshelves: african-american, working-class

This is an excellent novel that almost ends with no redeemable characters. At times, melodramatic and the characters are either too evil or too good (Brownfield is completely bad and Ruth seems nearly all good), but overall a beautiful character study. In her first novel, Walker shows how oppression and imposed poverty (that is, hardly anyone can work his/her way out of sharecropping) can create undesirable people.
