Paradox, Definitely 16 marzo 2003
Di Gloria Lewis - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The Last of the Whitfields is simultaneously serious and humorous. Set in a "backwoods little town," Ashton, Georgia, it tells a little girl's story as she matures in the "backwards" South. It is difficult to tell the South's story through the eyes of child, but Sanguinetti delivers. The child speaker brings a more light tone to the racial issues of the 1960s. Issues like Civil Rights (Sit-ins), Integration, and racial misconceptions are touched upon (though ever so lightly). This is a wonderful book for a light read, especially if you love Southern literature, as I do. (I should know, too, y'all; I'm from the South).

From an Earlier Era 20 febbraio 2009
Di Elizabeth G. Montis - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The writer captures life in the time and place her novel is set with total authenticity. Her characters are as genuine as next door neighbors of that era. I loved this book.

Not just in Alabama anymore...or shouldn't be 6 gennaio 2011
Di Diann - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I too love Renata Adler, but when I read the above item, I posted the following on Goodreads:

I wish I'd known about this. I would have recommended the works of Elise Sanguinetti, now sadly almost forgotten. I don't know where or how to start praising her four novels, THE LAST OF THE WHITFIELDS, THE NEW GIRL, THE DOWAGER, and BEDFORD'S STATION; but where some people might look at the tag of "Alabama author" and think "regional writer"--no, worse, "Southern Female Writer"--their themes are timeless and their historical resonances are an integral, so to speak, part of 20th American cultural history. Someone on Amazon has compared her to Louis Auchincloss, about whom my tattooed friend Ben Downing has written so eloquently, and I should add that while WHITFIELDS was re-issued by the University of Alabama Press, Sanguinetti (look up her family, the Ayers) is about as much exclusively Alabama as Auchincloss is Wall Street...or the eponymous academy in THE RECTOR OF JUSTIN.
