Born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, hooks drew her unique pseudonym from the name of her grandmother, an intelligent and strong-willed African American woman who inspired her to stand up against a dominating and repressive society. Her poetry, novels, memoirs, and children's books reflect her Appalachian upbringing and feature her struggles with racially integrated schools and unwelcome authority figures. In "Appalachian Elegy, " bell hooks continues her work as an imagist of life's harsh realities in a collection of poems inspired by her childhood in the isolated hills and hidden hollows of Kentucky.
At once meditative, confessional, and political, this poignant volume draws the reader deep into the experience of living in Appalachia. Touching on such topics as the marginalization of its people and the environmental degradation it has suffered over the years, hooks's poetry quietly elegizes the slow loss of an identity while also celebrating that which is constant, firmly rooted in a place that is no longer whole.

Nothing preachy but full of his heart and his life experiences. His fiction is also well worth a read. Recommending to everyone but most specially for teachers to use in their classes as "thinking" pieces. Back to the Waverley family. Magic of the mountains and special hearts reflect well in her stories. Reading all the novels and waiting for more from this young talented NC writer.
Start with Garden Spell to get you on the road to meet the Waverley women. On the first page my heart felt the pain engulfing the main character that I was not even familiar with. That is a good start for a novel and it gets even better.
This novel is about George Sand and her friends. A fine novel and well written.
