really liked it

I remember the prose being really luscious. It is, but I loved this book profoundly for entirely different reasons this time around. I loved the way he looked at human nature, at race and racism, at class, and North vs. South-ism (whatever that is)... a lovely, lovely, compassionate look at America.
