The Maid's Version

Excuse us if we seem exhausted today. We stayed up all night finishing The Maid's Version ($15) by Daniel Woodrell . It clocks in at just under two hundred pages, but don't dismiss it as just another quick and easy read. Woodrell, who also penned Winter's Bone, writes such captivating prose that you'll reread passages for the sheer pleasure of them. The tale is set in the Ozarks, and centers around the causes and aftermath of a 1929 dance hall explosion, as described by one of the witnesses, whose sister died in the flames.
