A Complicated Kindness

I only purchased a few meager gifts for Tracey this Christmas and for that I am probably not a model husband. That said, I did make a quality purchase: 'A Complicated Kindness' by Miriam Toews. Here is but one short excerpt:

"The place Trudie travelled to most often was the church basement. The women have to spend a lot of time there. If they don't they go to hell."

Shelli just picked it up on the weekend and I've secretly been reading it when she is not (she hates that). I can't figure out why mennonites hate this book so much ?????
If you like the kind of book that looks at the peculiarities of small town life check out Lake Wobegon Days, by Garrison Keillor. (it's on my favourite books list) I was like reading about my life growing up, as I'm sure this book is to you. DArryl

Ah, church basement hell, how apt. I loved that book and can't wait to borrow it for a second read once you're done.

Are you going to wreck the book to get back at us for the Lorax incident?
