Power, Loss and Love in a Very Texan Story
Faith Bass Darling is getting ready for a trip, and she’s selling all her worldly possessions — possessions that are imbued with her own history and that of the small Texas town over which she has reigned her whole life — at insane prices.
Local author Lynda Rutledge has written a sweet and complicated book that deals with subjects from senility to power, love and loss. The author of Faith Bass Darling’s Last Garage Sale will be at BookPeople tonight at 7 o’clock.
Materialism: Do our possessions possess us? Who are we without our memories? Faith is beginning to lose her memory. She has Alzheimer’s and it’s growing worse. In essence, those are universal issues, but some of the things that create the very center of the family tragedy that happened 20 years before, that made her a recluse, those are very Texan.
