    I read this probably 20y ago. I was significantly dumber then; I should probably reread.

    hey Truman I was looking at the website for Parnassus Books, a Nashville store owned by awesome writer Ann Patchett

    she keeps a running list of recommendations and Deacon King Kong was on it. So now I think I'm gonna buy it because if she vouches for something, it is legit

    Ann Patchett books would make a great gift for anyone, but especially any women in your lives. Look up her appearance on the Colbert Report, she is such a rock star :themoreyouknow:

    Santiago or Ivory by Michael Resnick. They’re heavily allegorical science fiction meets American frontier tall tale-ism with a scathing undercurrent of criticism towards African colonialism. Santiago is the swashbuckling popcorn movie novel and Ivory verges more on high lit.
