** Gun Love by Jennifer Clement

Gun Love starts, in a matter-of-fact and breath-taking way, with a mother and her young daughter living out of a car that has long ago stopped running, parked outside a rundown trailer park. And life is quite normal: the daughter goes to school, the mother goes to work, they go to church, amongst the alligators and gunshots. Eventually, mom will pick a very unsuitable boyfriend and that world will come to an end. I loved the story until that moment. What follows seems more cliché and hastily put together. Savor part 1.
