Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Special Algonquin 10th Anniversary Edition. Set in the farmland of Owen County, Kentucky, PASSING THROUGH achieves that remarkable intimacy all fiction strives for. We watch the family of Pearl Thirwell White--"Mama Pearl"--move from comedy through tragedy, from bickering and broken hearts through generosity and love, until we are no longer guests in Pearl's kitchen or at her table. Soon we are family ourselves. "PASSING THROUGH is hilarious, but it's also poignant and deeply moving in the strangest ways."--Bobbie Ann Mason, author of FEATHER CROWNS.
