Dear Readers,

For the September meet up, we will honour Sam Shepard's memory - he passed away in July - and read the story that was rewarded by the Pulitzer Prize.

Summary: "A scene of madness greets Vince and his girlfriend as they arrive at the squalid farmhouse of Vince’s hard-drinking grandparents, who seem to have no idea who he is. Nor does his father, Tilden, a hulking former All-American footballer, or his uncle, who has lost one of his legs to a chain saw. Only the memory of an unwanted child, buried in an undisclosed location, can hope to deliver this family from its sin."

I wish you a great reading moment, and a fabulous summer in the meantime!
