Okay, today's brief entry is about a book entitled Ruby. Only it's not about Ruby, the programming language, but a novel about Ruby Ball, who grows up to become the town whore of
Liberty Township, Texas and the object of the affections of one Ephram Jennings.
A word of warning: This is not
the kind of novel, although stunningly written, that you'd want to read to idle away an evening. It is not even an enjoyable,
nor pleasurable story, although it is an intriguing and gripping tale of a man (Ephram) who would do anything to be with the
woman (Ruby) he loves. If you are faint-heartened, Ruby will give you nightmares. However, if you are brave enough, it will keep you gripped in the vise, and vice, of its haunting
tale, and will feed you grissly disturbing food for thought.
If you're even mildly curious, follow the link to
www.authorexposure.com and read my review comments. Then drum up the courage to read this intriguing first novel from a very talented young author.
