I distaste reading novels but this one, ‘Getting Mother’s Body’, is a different piece altogether. I must admit it is a page-turner and engrossing. Suzan-Lori Parks’ writing style is incredible, chatty, emphatic, well-turned and articulate. A few questions for her, what corrupted Billy Beede’s decision to abort? Why does she portray Dill Smiles’ homosexuality in the ‘60s yet it wasn’t legal?
