Oh, how I wish the wonderful Ms. Brooks would write more novels!
First of all, Maud Martha was written very economically which has caused me to gain a greater appreciation of poetry and concise speaking.
Secondly, Maud Martha is not only written to a female or adult audience, but it speaks to all people of different age groups, races, or walks of life.
I appreciate Gwendolyn Brooks for her nobility and classic style. Hope to see at least one more novel from her.
I have already passed on a few copies of Maud Martha. This has gone on to being my favorite book...EVER!
