Ric household becomes the very model of family life reinventedSurprising and wise A Girl Could Stand Up is a novel bristling with charmMarshall's exuberant imagination enchants the reader while a deep current of wisdom lends ballast to an exhilarating stor Another great booksale scoop A Girl Could Stand Up is weird uirky textured and interesting It took me uite a while to get through it granted busy days but it's not a fast read but I was hooked from the start It reminds me of Tell the Wolves I'm HomeMember of the Weddingsomething by Anne Tyler with overtones of Ann Patchett It wasn't amazing as the five star label translates but it is an excellent book in its startling originality and uncompromising story telling I just didn't know what was coming next but Marshall made me determined to stick around for whatever it wasHighly recommended I'd read by Marshall but it looks like this is her only novel Anyone know ?
