Monday, November 12, 2012

In the language of her native Appalachia, Kingsolver unearths the modern complexities of rural existence and dissects the motives behind denial and belief in a precarious world.

I'm a big fan of Barbara Kingsolver's mind and writing. I was wondering how many, if any, books and stories has she stopped working on because the story doesn't work?

And, I would also like to ask her what was the first piece she wrote that she liked?

Thank you
