Highwire Moon, Susan Straight, Houghton Mifflin Company, 2001, 305 pp

Part 3: Susan Straight Week

I read Highwire Moon back in 2008, so it was not part of my recent Straight marathon. It is her fourth novel and different in that the characters are mostly Mexican and white, though it takes place in Rio Seco. Now that I have read all of her novels in order, I notice that Ms Straight began writing in a somewhat new and modified style in Highwire Moon; less words, more imagery and, in my opinion, more Toni Morrison-like.

Here is my posted review of Highwire Moon from July, 2008.
