1 Review
"Once people get to Linden Hills, the quest continues, more subtle, but equally fierce; the goal is a house on Tupelo Drive, the epitome of achievement and visible success. No one notices that the property on Tupelo Drive goes back on sale quickly; no one questions why there are always vacancies at Linden Hills." -- Back cover.

Review: Linden Hills

User Review  - Jed - Goodreads

A strange one more or less about how difficult to define and address issues of race, culture, and economic class are. Leans a little too heavily on (somewhat forced vernacular) dialouge for me, comes across as mythic when it probably wasn't meant to be... not the best. Read full review
