Perfect PeaceThe heartbreaking portrait of a large rural southern family’s attempt to grapple with their mother’s desperate decision to make her newborn son into the daughter she will never have     When the seventh child of the Peace family named Perfect t This is a very unusual and original story A woman in the deepest and poorest Black south has had enough of having sons and raises one of them as a girl until she is forced to tell him and everyone else that her eight year old daughter is in fact her son What else is good is that this is finely drawn portrait of the woman seen directly and through others' eyes There is a really interesting cast of characters and when I say 'cast' I am thinking not just of the book but also a potential film this story would look fantastic on the big screenWhat is not so good about the book is that the author cannot make up his mind which character to concentrate on so you never get a full picture of anyone and there is always you want to know Since the intention of the book is to stand alone and not to be a series which would be uite possible it's a 45 star book rounded upThe author writes really well It's uite a joy to read descriptive writing that never becomes 'lyrical' or 'poetic' but remains the vehicle of the story but yet describes a world and a place just recently gone byNotes on reading the book view spoiler I thought this would be a good airplane book I flew down to Miami today but its a lot deeper than that It's by an African American professor who writes really well This book isn't political at least not so far but it is showing the different experiences of blackswhites in the US dramatically different from the West Indies and that to me is an extra dimension in what so far is book all about the characters I love well written books where the characters are people you can think of outside the story hide spoiler
