Synopsis: "When I was little I would think of ways to kill my daddy. I would figure out this or that way and run it down through my head until it got easy." So begins the tale of Ellen Foster, the brave and engaging heroine of Kay Gibbons's first novel, which won the Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy of Institute of Arts and Letters. Wise, funny, affectionate, and true, Ellen Foster is, as Walker Percy called it, "The real thing. Which is to say, a lovely, sometimes heartwrenching novel. . . . [Ellen Foster] is as much a part of the backwoods South as a Faulkner character?and a good deal more endearing."

Book Description: "Ellen Foster is a southern Holden Caulfield, tougher perhaps, as funny. . . . A breathtaking first novel." ?Walker Percy

"A stunning new writer. . . . The life in this novel, the honesty of th0ought and eye and feeling and word! ?Eudora Welty

"The story of a redoubtable girl who overcomes adversity with humor, spunk, and determination, Kaye Gibbons's first novel is a work of considerable subtlety and intellectual sophistication. A terrific book." ?Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

"Filled with lively humor, compasion and integrity . . . Ellen Foster may be the most trustworthy character in recent fiction." ?Alice Hoffman, The New York Times Book Review
