A Writer's LifeBook - 2016
"Evenly divided between a book about Smiths process and her life, first as a Southern mountain child and, later, as the parent of a schizophrenic child, this book is interesting and compelling. Despite being surrounded by loving family and being blessed with an active imagination, Lee copes with a mentally ill mother. Later, her sons mental illness and early death brings her to the breaking point but she is saved by her writing. This is a read-alike for Karrs The Liars Club. It desperately needs a cinematic translation for its elegant and evocative writing. -- Lois Gross for LibraryReads.,"--NoveList.
