“A Real Jewel”
A large story, funny, sad, surprising, truthful, important, and most entertaining, “Brambleman” takes issue with pervasive, decades-old injustice in the South.
Mr. Grant writes from the heart; he takes a side that he believes in, and very probably lives. His Brambleman Facebook page is a gem, and assists the reader to continue to feel in touch with both the world created in the book, and the ongoing battle to do what is right.
There was a point, about three-quarters of the way through, when everything seemed to peak to inevitability, and I just had to laugh aloud in sheer enjoyment and admiration for this author’s skills. (Chain-Gang Elementary, Mr. Grant’s other great read, has one of these moments as well. )
There are very few books that I cannot put down. This was one.
