Description - Cavedweller by Dorothy Allison
A wonderful full blooded story about how our heroine - an ex rock-chick - pulls her family back together again ten years after she's fled from her violent husband and the mean-spirited small town of her youth. When Delia Byrd packs her car and begins the long trip home from Los Angeles - from the glamour of rock 'n' roll business, her passion for singing and songwriting, and the darker days of whiskey and violence and too much belief in the promises of a man she loved - she heads to Cayro, Georgia and her own unresolved past. Ten years earlier, Delia left the husband who turned on her; abandoned her two daughters, one an infant, and fled to California. But Delia is pulled back to Georgia; to a world of convenience stores and biscuit factories, kudzu and deep-rooted Baptism - to make a deal with the man she paid a high price to leave. She brings her third daughter, Cissy, with her. And as the lives of Delia, Cissy, Amanda, and Dede converge, Delia's past uncoils into the present with a ferocity that brings all four women to terms with themselves and with one another.
If you liked CURE FOR DEATH BY LIGHTENING you will love CAVEDWELLER with its cast of characters including gun-toting nymphomaniacs, mad evangelical Christians and lesbian pot holers.
