The Dispossessed

The Dispossessed by Don Carpenter

I recently read Don Carpenter‘s novel Hard Rain Falling, and liked it, so I looked at the library (such lovely blog photos from library books) to see what else I could find.  I found The Dispossessed, a great novel about some of the people in the margins, i.e. homeless, mentally ill,  in a small California community. A very realistic and moving book.

Look for more of Don Carpenter’s books on this blog, as I find them. The library had a copy of his novel Getting Off, but someone cut out some of the sex scenes. Who would do that?

Grade: B+
