  1. I bought this book because the author s books Skin and Trash are spotlighted in the anthologies Courting Pleasure and Lovers love and sex stories by Tee A Corinne I enjoyed them both tremendously and sought out this book.From the back of the book Out of Carolina, nominated for the 1992 National Book Award for fiction, introduced Dorothy Allison as one of the most passionate and gifted writers of her generation Now, in Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, she takes a probing look at her family s [...]


  2. A self proclaimed and widely admired story teller, Dorothy Allison goes from novels into straight memoir with Two or Three Things I Know for Sure But here s the thing it s lyrical, poetic, gorgeous writing Shouldn t be a surprise, I guess, as she IS a poet something I blush to admit I didn t actually know , but surprised I was.Sprinkled throughout the story are little 3 4 line snippets in italics, each one beginning with the words her aunt used to say Two or three things I know for sure And then [...]

  5. Never heard of this author until I read Bastard out of Carolina just recently I wish this was longer I really enjoy her work.


  6. From the Author s note at the end of the book Two or Three Things I Know for Sure was written for performance in the months of completing my novel Bastard Out of Carolina The book is adapted from that material I sure wish I had Allison s storytelling ability She tells what it s like for the women of her family, a family from rural South Carolina, what it was like for her being part of that family What it s like is your dreams get done under early on in life, any possibility of being than your fa [...]
