    I didn't know this was a book. The movie made me bawl and I felt just awful for days after seeing it!

    How about a grilled portabella or black bean burger? Maybe a garlic, kale saute?

    Try Horns ...I really like the premise and what happens as a result. Quirky and original .. You're right ghost...He has a ton of talent.

    Probably a silly question, Sharon, but have you read Alison Weir's British historical novels? EXTREMELY well-written and well-researched.

    Kids got me the latest PB George R.R. Martin book for Christmas, so that's my next read. He's quite the world builder! Very interested in how he'll wrap up the series in the last two books (I think Jon Snow is one of Robert's bastards and will end up king, but don't tell Martin or he'll kill my boy for sure--lol).

    Currently half way through Valley of Amazment by Amy Tan. I was always curious abot The Joy Luck Club and founs a second hand copy cheap last summer. Was blown away by it, so whenI saw a new book out by her asked Santa and got hooked up. Loving it. It describes a time and way of life very foreign to me in such a way I feel like I'd recognize it immediatly. Highly reccomend.

    Neesy #1 fan (Annie Wilkes cousin) 1st cousin Mom's side

    I wonder - is it hereditary or maybe just the way he was raised? I am thinking probably a combination of both!

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    Whenever adverts for any shows like this come on tv, I turn them before I end up asleep, so the only way I know of George R.R. Martin is from South Park :) , and they made him out to be a "weiner obsessed" weirdo. Is this true?

    No idea if it is true but my son walked by the computer when I was watching this short video and he said "That's sick" :tongue-new:

    Have you tried any Harry Crews? Larry Brown? Barry Hannah? Charles Willeford, too...although maybe he doesn't fall into your category...I've read many from your list and have enjoyed all their stories.

    No I haven't, friend, but I'll sure look them up. Nothing I like better than finding a new author! By redneck lit I mean stories about rural folk, whether set in the old west or the current day.

    You can't go wrong with any of the writers I listed. Let me know what you think once you've read a few.

    Oh man, Harry Crews looks awesome but none of his stuff is in e-book format :(

    Yeah...he was a real character...took a class or two under him. Nice guy, but he looks like he's been through the wringer...and he had been. Fell in a pot of boiling water when he was a kid when they were...doing hogs...and that time he spent recuperating in bed influenced his outlook on life as well as his fiction. I imagine most university libraries have copies of his stories...his books sell for top dollar used at the various sites. And that reminds me that I'd ordered Naked in Garden Hills online awhile back...still no book. He was working on The Knockout Artist and All We Need of Hell when I knew him and that was fun, feeding off someone who shared his creative process with us. He passed away a year or so ago. He told me that some day I'd publish something and it would all make sense...maybe one day...if this snow ever stops. Self-employed carpenter isn't conducive to finding time to write.
