I'll Take You There by Wally Lamb

METABOOK for iPad and iPhone

In Wally Lamb's stunning new novel, I'll Take You There, a film professor reflects on the women who profoundly impacted his life—from a Gen Y writer for New York magazine to a contestant in the 1948 Miss Crawfish of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana beauty pageant. The medium of film becomes the lens for exploring the feminine ideals and feminist realities that each of the women must face. One of America's most beloved writers, Wally Lamb is the author of five New York Times bestselling novels and was twice selected for Oprah's Book Club.
