The Bright Forever

Have you read Lee Martin's book, The Bright Forever? This book draws from a real event that happened in Lawrenceville, IL in the 1970's. Good books are often based partly on facts or events that have occurred in a region known to the author. Remember, the advice -- "Write about what you know"-- is really true.
This book was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in fiction in 2006 and it is REALLY good! Once you start reading it, you may be up all night, not able to put it down until the last page.
