It took college to really open my eyes to the insight that I had read very few books by authors who were not white and from an American or British tradition It became a personal project to increase the diversity of my reading while still hanging in my favorite genres of mystery sci fi and fantasy I was scanning through my college’s small bookstore looking for my books for the semester when I saw the Penguin paperback edition of Blanche no doubt on the list for some literature class I quickly grabbed it and settled down for a read Blanche on the Lam held my attention but even than that it shares and affirms an experience seldom portrayed in literatureBlanche is an African American domestic worker recently moved

    Blanche on the Lam Kindle Ý Blanche on Epub / blanche kindle, Blanche on book, Blanche on the Lam MOBIBlanche White is not exactly a fairy tale heroine like her near namesake Snow White She is a strong minded kind hearted woman who is also a housekeeper in the post racial South Blanche likes her job and is good at it One of the many joys of this detective book are the mouth watering descriptions of Blanche's superb Southern cooking My diet was sorely tempted by these sectionsWhile on the run for a minor check cashing incident Blanche ends up at a creepy Southern mansion She is surrounded by a satisfyingly dysfunctional
