Bastard Out of Carolina

PS 3551.L453B37 1993
Dorothy Allison Anney makes the best gravy in the county, the sweetest biscuits, and puts just enough vinegar in those greens. Glenn nodded, though the truth was he'd never had much of a taste for greens, and his well-educated mama had always told him that gravy was bad for the heart. So he was not ready for the moment when Mama pushed her short blond hair back and set that big plate of hot food down in front of his open hands. Glenn took a bite of gristly meat and gravy, and it melted between his teeth. The greens were salt sweet and fat rich. His tongue sang to his throat; his neck went loose, and his hair fell across his face. It was like sex, that food, too good to waste on the middle of the day and a roomful of men too tired to taste.” (1)

Sue Monk Kidd An uplifting trend among many novels on this list is that there is an insistence on bridging the gap between white America and Black America. This novel is no exception; about Lily, a young girl who saves Rosaleen– a wrongfully persecuted black maid — from the local police, the story describes their escape to an isolated apiary, where Lily will fall in love, but not before a whole other series of violent conflicts will soon erupt.
