RETURN TO TRADD STREET
White’s iconic Southern fiction with a woo-woo twist is superb. Her humorously eloquent narrative illuminates her graphic scenes, while her characters, including the house, deserve rave reviews for their performances. The quirky, neurotic and lovable Melanie is a standout, and her capricious romance with Jack entertains and keeps readers guessing until the end. The novel stands well alone, but reading the series in order is best.
