it was amazing

Don't ask me what it is about Kaye Gibbons. She just has one of those voices that speaks to me from somewhere out of my ancestral southern past, I guess. Some smooth, smokey drawl that captures my attention, and holds it, drawing it into the hearts of her characters, so that her stories for me are far, far more than the sum of their parts. They are all women's stories, and stories of adversity, with a southern flavor that is so familiar to me, it truly seems to call out from my own distant past. They are American stories that seem to resonate with many people other than myself, so there must be more to it than the pale blue eyes of my great grandmother and her twin, that seem to look out at me from the pages and their voices that whisper as these stories progress.
I love her. I collect her books. I read them over and over. She's like a friend.
