I can't think of a book I've read recently I enjoyed more - This book is written in such a unique and wonderful style. The author has no pretense at all---she is totally honest and straightforward and writes as if she is talking to a close friend. I think she is able to tell the story of her Appalachian childhood with a perspective gained from being on the "outside" in body for many years, but not in her heart. I feel like I learned much about that region that I had never known, and many of my misconceptions were exposed to me! I especially liked that this book did not stop when her childhood was over, but told of the rest of her life up to this date, so you were able to see how her further life was influenced by her childhood and its shaping of her attitudes. This book has other stories to tell, too---how it feels to be a golf widow, how you can end a marriage but not the friendship it was based on, how someone who never planned to do so moves up in the academic world, and more! Books like this are such a gem as...
Creeker is inspirational! Full of universal truths! - This book is not just a chronicle of the author's existence. It is instead a book that made me focus on my life and relationships within my family. This author has taken her life and presented it in such a way that it helped me get more insight into mine.She has also given me insight into, and great respect for a part of this country that has long been mysterious to most of us. To be honest, this is the first really positive thing I have seen about Appalachia. Derosier makes it clear that she loves and honors what she calls her "place" and her "people" as she shows how her extended family has shaped the life she lives today. While there may not have been a lot of money changing hands, there is a beauty and richness in the relationships of these people that some of us can only wish for in our own lives. I know I will be discussing Creeker with my family.What a book, chock full of universal truths and wisdom! Derosier's language is at once...
says DeRosier is a phenomenal woman - It's been years, but I had some college psychology courses from DeRosier and recently came upon her memoir. I have to say that she was as real and as memorable to me in the book as she was back when I sat in her classroom. She was and remains a storyteller extraordinaire - very much reminiscent of Rocket Boys by Hickam. Like him, she has that rare ability to describe life as it was, the good and the bad in such a way that readers can only come away from the experience knowing and understanding more than they ever could have without her perspective and gift of language. She'll make you laugh 'til your sides hurt and, if you're made of flesh and blood, she might just call up a few tears. Creeker touched my heart and delighted my soul. It was a magical and captivating journey through a time and place, a culture and a way of life that tried to define her upper limits, to protect her - and she makes of her life so much both because of and despite that that if you've ever known...
