Fay Author Larry Brown Download ✓ 8 ☆ She's had no education hardly any shelter and you can't call what her father's been trying to give her since she grew up love So at the ripe age of seventeen Fay Jones leaves homeShe lights out alone wearing her only dress and rotting sneakers carrying a purse with a half pack of cigarettes and two dollOrleans She'll make it whatever making it means because Fay's got what it takes beauty a certain kind of innocent appeal and the instinct for survivalSet mostly in the seedy beach bars strip joints and massage parlors of Biloxi Mississippi back before the casinos took over Fay is a novel that only Larry Brown the reigning king of Grit Lit could have written As the New York Times Book Review once put it he's a writer absolutely confident of his own voice He knows how to tell a sto. All I know is that I couldn't put the book down It's a good story well written exciting and suspenseful Yeah the language is bad and there is lots of sex but heck I really liked it A LOT Fay poor FayA word about Fay I have been yelled at in another review for using the term white trash So tell me what other words can be used that so succinctly so completely depict a group of people OK I will describe Fay as poor and uneducated but that just brushes the surface of her ignorance Her understanding of how the world works is at a completely other level than most people's She doesn't know about tips or that liuor and cigarettes can only be bought if you are over 18 That is just two examples I did wonder at times if such ignorance was possible She went only through the fifth grade This book shows you her world and it is worth reading just for that To learn To understand what such a life is like; not to accuse but to really understand What are her alternatives Does she even have any alternativesEventually she learns about the real world All I will say is that she survives That is the only hint I will give about this story that concerns a police officer 17 year old Fay and a strip club bouncer in Mississippi in 1985 Love and survival are the themesBelieve it or not there is humor Here is one example She has learned one must tip So she tips a taxi driver and he says You are a very kind lady and a most scrumptious one I smiled There is so much beer consumed in this book it ought to be made into a movie to sell beer That the characters didn't simply float away is amazingBeside the tension that builds what hit me about the writing was the author's ability to describe body movements in such detail that you can read body language without seeing a picture This is very effective The emotions are there before your eyes through the body language described It is like watching a movie rather than hearing a story The audiobook narration by Tom Stechschutte was perfect No complaints Each character when they spoke sounded just as they should soundMy thoughts half way through This is so sad Do you hear meAnd life is so complicated It is actually possible to love a person so terribly fked up as Fayeven given what she does My heart bleeds for Fay

She's had no education hardly any shelter and you can't call what her father's been trying to give her since she grew up love So at the ripe age of seventeen Fay Jones leaves homeShe lights out alone wearing her only dress and rotting sneakers carrying a purse with a half pack of cigarettes and two dollar bills Even in 1985 Mississippi two dollars won't go far on the road She's headed for the bright lights and big times and even she knows she needs help getting there But help's n. She probably isn’t SINless lacking a Single Identification Number SIN but Fay reminded me of William Gibson’s Mona Of course I believe this is Mississippi grit litI think these uotes point out a lot of her trouble Plus being young clueless homeless destitute and attractive“All this trouble over a little blood rising up in an organ and glance and looks and thoughts of the joining of flesh”“For just a moment before she opened it she thought about what she was doing and wondered what was in the bags Then she went ahead and put the key into the lock and turned it and turned the handle The bags were close to her hand”

review Fay Author Larry Brown

Fay Author Larry BroOt hard to come by when you look like FayThere's a highway patrolman who gives her a lift with a detour to his own place There are truck drivers who pull over to pick her up no uestions asked There's a crop duster pilot with money for a night or two on the town And finally there's a strip joint bouncer who deals on the sideAt the end of this suspenseful compulsively readable novel there are five dead bodies stacked up in Fay's wake Fay herself is sighted for the last time in New. Well damn Larry Brown sure knows how to hunt a reader down when their eyes are trained on the fate of his characters I couldn’t read this fast enough and I regretted my haste from top to bottom thankful though when he took time to coax us in with the smoke and the whiskey taking in the sun on the deck with AmyI can see that other readers may be impatient with that settling in thing he does but he gears up uick enough and I began to run out of pages fast chasing with Sam trying to get ahead of it all somehow What I’m saying is heart and hope get involved directly with these characters all of them Fay Sam Aaron and Reena I lost count of all the black souls on that Larry Brown highway but felt like they were carrying the good ones with them from Biloxi down to Pass Christian and tell me if Tom Waits Hold On isn’t about Fay If anyone has any ideas on how I can fall into a book next that is as good as this please let me know otherwise I might just get back to Dirty Work If only the post man would hurry Joe along
