I have been on a book reading frenzy these days. I think I have the TTPT covered well into 2010. ;-) September's book is Billie Letts The Honk and Holler Opening Soon. This is the second book of Letts I've read (Shoot The Moon was the other); she has a way of helping this east coast old school Virginia gal understand and relate to her characters whom are nothing like anyone I've ever met. Letts does an outstanding job of making them real. We all have experienced a range of emotions and disappointments in our lives whether it relates to us ourselves or to what some one else has inflicted upon us - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In searching for a decent picture of the books cover, I stumbled upon a review by Kirkus reviews:
"A sunny look at the dark side, as a poster group--a Vietnam vet, an Asian immigrant, a Native American, and an African-American widow--serendipitously find happiness at an Oklahoma diner."
I think that sums it up quite well. I hope you are intrigued and will add this to your must read list. I have been thinking of doing another theme month ... maybe a children's/youth book; something you read in middle school or high school like A Separate Peace or Huckleberry Finn for example ... Jannza inspired me with her last TTPT post. What do you think?
