Novella of the moment

Old Girls in Low Cotton (Kindle Single) - Helen Childress

Somewhere people act normal -- but not in the Downy Mount Mobile Home Park, where recently widowed Marfa Bacot lives with her mother-in-law Lulu, who cleans from hell to breakfast and has her make-up tattooed on so she's always ready for the rapture. As if it's not crazy enough inside the trailer, Marfa has to deal with the other eccentrics who populate the park... 


Um,  this was ok.  It was a tad depressing and read like a day in the crazy life of these two women.  Almost like a reality show.  


I will say it is well written. I just wish she had written about something else.
