Exhausting and amazing!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Salvage the Bones: A Novel (Hardcover)
As a long time (30+years) English teacher, I always read the National Book Award finalists. I can't remember when a character, a family, or a situation grabbed me so completely; in this case I was taken me into that swampy place with Katrina lurking. I originally read the book from my library. I've ordered it because I want to own it and because all of my friends are now reading it and are anxious to talk about it. This is what fiction is all about.
