More Jonesing

Our Girl in Chicago has a great post about Edward P. Jones (and she manages to squeeze into her review a funny and mouth-watering detail that I wanted to squeeze into my review but couldn't: in one story, the devil appears to a woman in a supermarket, and we learn that "his tie was held in place against his white shirt with a ruby tie clip, about the size of a candy fireball"). Go and read it; and then buy the book, I really think it is his best one yet, I have been completely unable to get some of those characters out of my head, especially (of course) the one in "The Root Worker"....
