READ ¸ The Heavenly Table The eldest; handsome; intelligent; Cob short; heavy set; a bit slow; and Chimney the youngest; thin; ill tempered Several hundred miles away in southern Ohio a farmer by the name of Ellsworth Fiddler lives with his son Eddie and his wife Eula After Ellsworth is swindled out of his family’s entire fortune his life is put on a surprising unforgettable and violent trajectory that will directly lead him to cross. I admit I am spoiled by Devil All the Time but this book is solid in it s own way Short chapters make for uick reading but there are multiple story lines and several character arcs to keep track of left me thinking it s a little messy of a read Regardless I found myself laughing out loud on than one occasion so I bumped up the rating Overall I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading from this author

READ ¸ The Heavenly Table From Donald Ray Pollock author of the highly acclaimed The Devil All the Time and Knockemstiff comes a dark gritty electrifying and disturbingly weirdly funny new novel that will solidify his place among the best contemporary American authorsIt is 1917 in that sliver of border land that divides Georgia from Alabama Dispossessed farmer Pearl Jewett ekes out a hardscrabble existence with his three young sons Cane. This Donald Ray Pollock sure can write a spiritual journey This one is about a little white bird a hermit and the Heavenly Table and it takes up about 3 pages early on in this story and then a couple closer to the end The other 350 pages are a hellacious ride through 1917 historical fiction I go overboard with the trouble That s what I heard Donald Ray say in an interviewAt the root of most of the trouble in this story is a book The Life and Times of Bloody Bill Bucket by Charles Foster Winthrop IIIThe Jewett Brothers Cane Cob and Chimney have two books their mothers Bible and the Bloody Bill dime store novel They can t make hide nor hair of the Bible but Cane reads to his brothers every night of the whore chasing bank robbing Bill Bucket Other than the two books the only thing these brothers own are the stinkin rags they wear so when they set out to rise above their sualored life they do so the only way they think possibleThey steal some horses and set about bank robbin To everyone s surprise they re good at it And before long their saddle bags are full of money Cane wonders just how much money they may need for a fresh start somewhere far away from their new found fame Cob dreams of all the food they can now afford Seventeen year old Chimney is pretty sure he can now have all the whores he wants I was going to keep track of all the killings within this book Maybe record the last words of those killed Soon I discovered that was to much work I do remember that the multitude of characters were dispatched by the use of various firearms shotguns rifles and pistols One fellow used a straight razor Another used a machete that got stuck in a neck bone But there is a lot to this story than bank robbin and killin In order to help readers get to know these characters

as they stayed with Pearl And though Cane knew the book was fictitious sometimes it still seemed closer to the truth than anything he had read in his mother s Bible According to Charles Foster Winthrop III the world was an unjust despicable place lorded over by a select pack of the rich and ruthless and the only way for a poor man to get ahead was to ignore the laws that they enforced on everybody but themselves And from what Cane had seen in his twenty three years of barely surviving how could he disagreepage 4243 That afternoon Pearl s stomach started acting up Ever since they d
