Found this book at sale at the library and it mentioned it happened in St Louis so figured I should pick it up. St Louis was just background on this, could have picked any of hundreds of cities to fit the bill, no problem though. An interesting read, basically one conversation with a now college professor that grew up in the South & fought to get away, to get an education and a lady from that small town that was intertwined with his father at the time. Story was long but with enough twists that it made me want to keep on it to see how it would end. A different style book than most others so enjoyed it for that, being different.
I have posted it on PBS, there are 5 WL for it but there are also paperback copies available so not sure if these are real WL or not. With PBS going to a membership fee a couple years ago some of the WL are basically abandoned accounts and could be dealing with that here. Oh well posted it will just have to see.
