Winner of the Pen/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award. "The real achievement of this novel is not so much the blackness as the suggestion of resilience. At the end, Ruth begins to put together her shattered body, spirit and life. Her words are awkward, as they have been all along, but suddenly and unexpectedly they shing." LOS ANGELES TIMES
