Synopsis : "When I was little I would think of ways to kill my daddy. I would figure out this or that way and run it down through my head until it got easy." So begins the tale of Ellen Foster, the brave and engaging heroine of Kaye Gibbons's first novel, which won the Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Wise, funny, affectionate and true, "Ellen Foster" is, as Walker Percy called it, "The real thing. Which is to say, a lovely, sometimes heart/wrenching novel..."[Ellen Foster]" is as much a part of the backwoods South as a Faulkner character and a good deal more endearing."
Synopsis: In the VIRAGO MODERN CLASSICS series, from the author of SIGHTS UNSEEN, the story of an 11 year-old orphan and her battle for survival as she is driven to desperation by some wicked relatives.

Description de la librairie : The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
