Read in November, 2008

The most remarkable thing about this book -- aside from the poignant way White handles the subject matter -- is that it's all true. White has fictionalized a point in her childhood when the family was living in a mining "holler" in southwest Virginia. It's a pitiful, pathetic life, and yet White treats it with tenderness and grace. A good book.
