I just loved Treeborne. It has the fearlessness of a first novel but is told with dizzying skill. There were some choices which puzzled me initially, but by the last page, I understood that it was all laid down just as messy and perfect as life. It's a book that begs to be re-read. The life and death of Elberta, Alabama is told through the eyes of the Treeborne family, its women in particular. There are star-crossed lovers, dreams deferred, shattered glory, a giant catfish in the trunk of a car...oh, just read it! --Angel
