Another Book Finished...

On my trip home from Iowa, I began listening to another book, Crooked letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin.  I have been walking 5 miles every morning, allowing me to finish this book this morning.

Set in the small Mississippi town of Chabot, Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter tells the story of two boys turned men—Larry Ott and Silas Jones. On the surface, there seems to be nothing linking the two … but a long history binds the two together in ways that even they don’t fully understand.

As for the title... M, I, crooked letter, crooked letter, I, crooked letter, crooked letter, I, humpback, humpback, I.--How southern children are taught to spell Mississippi.
Crooked Letter, Crooked started slow for me but then left me looking for opportunies to listen to more.  Good books certainly make me eager for my morning walk.

We used to sing M-I-Crooked.... all the time as kids -- what a fun memory. Looks like another good book!
