Marty Fried Glad you liked this book, Matt;I loved it. I grew up in Alabama, and lived there through the 60s, then moved out to California in 1970 to get as far away from the area as possible. I was there when MLK marched in Selma, when our police commissioner, Eugene "Bull" Connor turned the fire hosed onto the peaceful Black protestors, when our governor stood on the steps at the Univ of Alabama to block the first black student, etc. My parents taught me that this was all wrong, and I took it to heart and could not fathom how people could be like that. But I never felt hated or threatened by the blacks; can't say the same for some of the whites, though.

Katie  Hanna I've heard good things about the movie, too! I will definitely try to check both the book and film out.

Pat Wonderful review Matt and an interesting topic. Interesting to me because it was only in 1967 that Aboriginals is Australia were recognised as 'people' and began to be counted in the census and got the right to vote. Some say that they were still being shot out of the back of utes (pick-up trucks to you Nth Americans) in the 1960s. Racism is still alive and well in some parts of the world.

message 30: by Matt (new)

Matt Thanks Pat. That said, there is nothing "well" about racism in any part of the world.

message 31: by Pat (new)

Pat Yes of course not, not the best choice of word but you know what I mean. I sometimes wish we could banish all 'isms'.

message 32: by Elaine (new)

Elaine Tomasso Great review Matt. I must look into this novel. It's so sad that many years later there needs to be a "black lives matter" campaign. I wish people would see that all lives matter but maybe that's the idealist in me.

message 33: by Matt (new)

Matt Totally agree, Elaine!
