If you put your judgements aside, and recognize it as coming from a specific time and place, you'll find it one of the most penetrating American novels ever written.

Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man
by Mary L. Trump.  I wish Ms. Trump had collaborated with a professional writer.  She is a seasoned professional mental health expert, so she writes in a clinician’s style.  It’s rather dry and methodical in its tone.  But fascinating information about Trump’s childhood and family.  Confirming again he’s one fucked up dude.

Welcome To The World Baby Girl by Fannie Flagg, published 1998.

The story starts in the small town of Elmwood Springs, Missouri in the late 1940s. Knowing what I do about the author I expected a humorous, even whimsical story about life in small town America.

I was surprised to find a much deeper story, one that bounces around from the 40s to the 70s. The first half was entertaining, if a little hard to follow, but the second half of the book turns out to be a heart rending tale about covert racism in America.

As the story unfolded, I was reminded of another book I read recently, Underground Railroad by Colin Whitehead (thank you MissBarbara).

Started in the Earthsea novels by Ursula K Le Guin but I've been doing my own writing and sitting worrying so much (distractions) that I haven't done much reading or writing.  Need to get through all this crap.  Bad news seems to come daily.
