Spit of a Minute: An irreconcilable life
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Spit of a Minute: An irreconcilable life.
“From gypsies to Jezebels, mules to monkeys and everything in between, the author crafts a rich slate of Flannery O’Connor-esque characters. You cannot help but find yourself pulling for them all, even the mean, low-down drunks and the whores. Make no mistake. Queenie’s is not a sappy coming of age story. Ms. Dixie fearlessly pulls no punches. I cannot wait to see what this original voice comes up with next. “

“Burn’s language is palpably evocative of the period–you could vividly imagine the scenes in sepia, peopled by those long-ago characters that now only exist as memory.”
“Burns writes with a relaxed, leisurely cadence with confidence in her literary powers. She effectively simulates the feel and mood of the South, as well as the hustle and bustle of the city–something about the writing, not the plot, that reminds me so much of Harper Lee’s classic `To Kill a Mockingbird.’
“Burn’s compelling narrative subtly shifts in tone and texture according to the changes in time, and this is one of the qualities in her writing that makes me hope she actually writes more, and soon.”
