"Cane River covers 137 years of the author's family history, written as fiction, but rooted in research, historical fact and family stories." A poignant and beautifully written story.

"I love this book! I had heard abou tthis book for years and then my dear friend Julia Roberts did an interview in 'O, The Oprah Magazine' and she listed this as one of her favorite books of all times. The book I love so much--recommended to me by Julia--is 'The Heart is a Lonely Hunter' by Carson McCullers. It's a great, great read and not hard at all."--Oprah
The Moviegoer, by Walker Percy
I never saw the movie (I do think there was one), but the book was beautifully heartbreaking.
