Beyond FICTION: LOTTERY by Patricia Wood
While Lottery tells the story of a sudden lottery winner based in the state of Washington, it goes beyond the immediate impact of this development on the main character to explore interactions between people with special needs and those around them. I’ll delve more into the plot after reading the book; suffice to say Lottery has been named a Booksense October pick and is causing a lot of buzz. Those who’ve “known” Patricia for a while due to her on-line activities understand the effort that’s gone into the creation of this book. Those, like yours truly, who’ve only recently discovered Patricia Wood’s nifty blog, are just beginning to enjoy brief escapes into her world, a world that involves not only a writer on a boat, but a writer on a boat with two cats, a husband, and a home-base of Hawaii. Sounds like a nice place to live a writing life; I’ll enjoy a taste of it myself as I head to Maui for the first time next week!
