Sweeping Up Glass

I have to say that I have never yet read a growing-up-in-the-South novel that I haven't really enjoyed, and so it was with Sweeping Up Glass by Carolyn Wall. I also have to say that I have never finished a growing-up-in-the-South novel that in any way makes me wish I had actually come of age in the South anytime in recent history. Even so, it does seem to provide a depth of experience that is fodder for many talented and/or popular writers.


  1. It always amazes me how many people enjoy reading about the South. I don't get it. Perhaps that's because I'm from the South.

    I look for books set in New England.

  2. I am right with you, but I'll take your recommendation and have a look.

  3. I'll check it out. I grew up in both north and south. Vastly different experiences.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
