Although I somehow have yet to meet her in person, I have come to know and admire author Tayari Jones through the Internet, first through her interview with Dan Wickett, and more recently through her own excellent blog. So when Tayari very generously offered an exchange–my e-books for a copy of one of her books–I jumped at the chance.
Largely due to Anne’s having recently mentioned it on her blog, I asked Tayari for a copy of The Untelling. Good choice, Erika!
I finished the novel Labor Day weekend, and I’m still thinking about it. Since I haven’t yet organized my own thoughts with the lucidity or comprehensiveness the book deserves, I’m going to rely on Anne once again. Please do check out her very thoughtful and on-target discussion of The Untelling here. And then follow our shared enthusiastic recommendation to read it yourself.
