Huh. I seem to have missed that. Camilla Send a noteboard - 22/05/2011 11:17:11 PM
I believe you were the one who originally described it to me as a book about growing up in the South. I think the reason why that had such an unfortunate effect is that I connect the depression and the racism-infested south with a very dreary world-view where all is bad and sad and difficult. Quite the wrong idea here.

I don't know, if a lot of people want to have this book in a Book Club, I have no objections. - 24/05/2011 07:01:38 PM 1720 Views

Calpurnia is a stereotype too. - 24/05/2011 11:54:26 PM 1762 Views
The difference, at least in my recollection, is that Calpurnia is well-educated. - 25/05/2011 08:09:58 PM 1703 Views
