Ellen Foster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons Book Summary:

"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 Kay Gibbons's first novel, which won the Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy of 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 heartwrenching novel. . . . [Ellen Foster] is as much a part of the backwoods South as a Faulkner character—and a good deal more endearing."

The Life All Around Me By Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons Book Summary:

This sequel to Gibbons' beloved classic Ellen Foster, stands on its own as an unforgettable portrait of a redoubtable adolescent making herself up out of whole cloth.

Her sole surviving ritual --a visit to the county fair --takes on totemic importance.

With a singular mix of perspicacity, naiveté and compassion, Ellen draws us into her life and makes us fall in love with her all over again.From the Hardcover edition.
