Item description for Hay Dioses En Alabama/There Are Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson...
When Arlene Fleet left Possett, Alabama to go to Chicago, she made three promises to God: she would never lie again, she would never have extramarital relations and she would never go back to her hometown. The only thing she asked in return was that the body of Jim Beverly, her school's famous quarterback never be found. Guilt and racial discrimination, friendship, love and betrayal, are all ingredients in this extraordinary first novel, set in the most authentic southern tradition. A novel that is reminiscent of Faulkner or Mc Cullers. Description in Spanish: Cuando Arlene Fleet se march a estudiar a Chicago, le hizo tres promesas a Dios. Nunca ms volvera a mentir, nunca ms mantendra relaciones sexuales fuera del matrimonio, y nunca ms regresara a su pueblo, Possett, Alabama. Lo nico que Dios tena que hacer a cambio era encargarse de que no se descubriese el cadver de Jim Beverly, el famoso quarterback del instituto.
