Anne Lamott recommends

A Southern Exposure (1995)
Alice Adams
"What a terrific book. I loved its rich, recognizable characters, the intricacies and excitement of the plot, the beauty of the writing. I laughed out loud a number of times, growled with jealousy at Alice's skills, and stayed up all night to finish it."

The Water Dancers (2003)
