Miss Jane

by Brad Watson

Astonishing prose brings to life a forgotten woman and a lost world in a strange and bitter sweet Southern pastoral. Drawing on the story of his own great-aunt, Watson explores the life of Miss Jane Chisolm, born in rural, early-twentieth-century Mississippi with a genital birth defect that would stand in the way of the central "uses" for a woman in that time and place: sex and marriage.

This book is its own quiet beauty, and Miss Jane Chisolm is my favorite literary lady of all time.
