The Help by Kathryn Stockett.. Once upon a time southern writer spirits the voices of the African-American "help" to great effect. (Professional writer on closed course.)

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"At turns hilarious and heart-wrenching...[A] pitch-perfect rendering. Readers are hooked.."

Associated Press

"Thought-provoking...[Stockett's] pitch-perfect depiction of a country's gradual path toward integration will pull readers into a compelling story that doubles as a portrait of a country struggling with racial issues...This is already one of the best debut novels of the year.."

USA Today
