Excellent autobiography of an interesting life.
Billie Jo and her family are residents of Oklahoma's Dust Bowl in the early 1930s, during the Depression. Her story is told in first person through a series of poems. Rather than narrating, the poems provide snapshots of individual incidents and emotions; the readers are forced to add the narration themselves that connects the poems together. This book would be a great way to introduce children to poetry, loss of a family member, and the history of the Great Depression.
Hollywood novel which seems to have been inspired by: 1) the career of silent film star Sessue Hayakawa (the fictional "Sleight of Hand" is pretty much a play-by-play of the DeMille film "The Cheat"), and 2) the William Desmond Taylor murder (reopened and solved off-the-record by my grandfather in '67.)
