"Alma DeGeer Dunahew, the mother of three young boys, works as the maid for a prominent citizen and his family in West Table, Missouri. Her husband is mostly absent, and, in 1929, her scandalous, beloved younger sister is one of the 42 killed in an explosion at the local dance hall. Who is to blame? Mobsters from St. Louis? The embittered local gypsies? The preacher who railed against the loose morals of the waltzing couples? Or could it have been a colossal accident? Alma thinks she knows the answer--and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair. Her dogged pursuit of justice makes her an outcast and causes a long-standing rift with her own son. By telling her story to her grandson, she finally gains some solace--and peace for her sister. He is advised to "Tell it. Go on and tell it"--tell the story of his family's struggles, suspicions, secrets, and triumphs."-- Dust jacket flap

The outlaw album by Daniel Woodrell( file )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
"Daniel Woodrell, the 'stunningly original' (Associated Press) American master, is able to lend logic to harsh, even criminal behavior in this wrenching collection of stories. Desperation-- both material and psychological-- motivates his characters. A husband cruelly avenges the killing of his wife's pet; an injured rapist is cared for by a young woman until she reaches her breaking point; a disturbed veteran of Iraq is murdered for his erratic behavior; an outsider's house is set on fire by an angry neighbor. There is also the tenderness and loyalty of the vulnerable in these stories-- between spouses, parents and children, siblings, and comrades in arms-- that brings the troubled, sorely tested cast of characters to vivid, relatable life. And, as ever, 'the music coming from Woodrell's banjo cannot be confused with the sounds of any other writer' (Donald Harington, Atlanta Journal-Constitution)."--Container
