Ruby River: A Novel

It immediately made me think of the Southern novels by Erskine Caldwell. God's Little Acre,Tobacco Road and many,many,more made him the best of the Southern,earthy novelists. For several reasons,he is almost unknown today ;but at his height he even outsold Steinbeck. The reasons why his works are hard to find,have more to do about bucking the establishment and political correctness and not over the supurb,quality,popularity and originality of his work.

If one has read much by Caldwell;it is very natural to compare Southern novels with his.

  • An Inventory of Archaic and Classical Poleis.
  • Water from the Moon: Illusion and Reality in the works of Australian Novelist Christopher Koch.

This book is an easy read and it did keep my interest; all the way to the end ,but I kept looking for more than there was there. For me,I have to feel the author's passion and experiences with the location,stories and most of all the characters. Caldwell lived and knew the characters in his novels and even when he created fictional characters they became real.

Obviously,while Pruett is a well trained and literally connected author,there is no feeling that she ever really knew the people,or types of people, she developed in this book.

Can a female writer compete with the likes of Caldwell,Faulkner and Steinbeck? Yes,I think so ,Margaret Mitchell immediately comes to mind.

This book gives me the feeling it was written by a 'trained artist'rather than by one who 'walked the walk'. I think the success of great authors comes from life experience gained by living with the people not by being a writer-in residence in some center of literacy. December 20, - Published on Amazon.

This is being presented as a "debut novel," but it is supremely accomplished, in both content and style. I read slowly, and put aside as many novels as I finish, maybe more, because sooner or later the author starts slacking off, delivering flat predictable scenes or long stretches of humdrum prose. That never happens here. Lynn Pruett is unfailing good company for pages, and as you make your way through her numerous short chapters, each one offers its own distinct thrill of discovery and insight.

The prose is the same way: always graceful, apt, and basically easy, it always has more to offer when you want to pause and savor the full import or the exact tone of what is being said. Story-wise, what first captures you is the humor of the early chapters, the wonderfully strange mixture of horniness and holiness: that, and of course the human interest of Hattie's quest, as she basically takes on the world in defense of her truck stop and her four girls.

Part of what the girls need to be protected from, though, is their own uncontrollable sensuality, with its disastrous tendency to involve them with men twice their age.
