Historical Adventure of Human Spirit in the American South Jul 8, 2004
Doris Porter's THE EIGHT GOLDEN PEARS transports me through cultural time, place and temperament into foreign realms of the old American South. She succeeds here where others have failed, in capturing the darker details of human belief and collective fear that flavored the era. In less masterful hands, the foreign feeling of such material overwhelms; and in the past, I have simply withdrawn. Here I could suspend disbelief to take a long look at the darker sides of humanness.
This is material that many, including middle class America, are attempting to grasp, as we cast some consciousness on our US collective past. The personal approach __ which in the hands of some masterful story weavers has failed for me so miserably before __ is the magic that carried me through PEARS and close to the world Porter describes. She brings us to the mouth of the beast, and manages to persuade us we want to go into the belly.
