This is a paperback. Winner of the Pen/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award. "Ms Hamilton gives Ruth a humble dignity and allows her hope - but it's not a heavenly hope. It's a common one, caked with mud and held with gritted teeth. And it's probably the only kind that's worth reading about." NY Times Book Review
