Big Stone Gap, by Trigiani

Postby DrG2 » Fri May 09, 2014 9:27 pm

I'm reading this to further my experience of women lit. She writes in present tense. But switches back and forth among tenses for exposition (and some description). Most of the time it is invisible. Sometimes it makes me a steaming pile of angry. In one sentence It starts present tense, goes to past tense, then to future conditional, then back to past tense. In one sentence.

Yeah, I'd love to read that sentence, too.

Excuse me, but what have Big Stone Gap and Trigiani got to do with your writing spaces?
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

My guess is a click one forum too far down.

sorry I started this thread, then didn't come back . . . but it did take a month before I got a response.

I read some of Trigiani's book a year or more ago, maybe two. I do remember some grammatical problems, but nothing specific. I haven't read any of the Big Stone Gap series though. My favorite book she's written is The Shoemaker's Wife. It's a nice story based on her grandparents, I believe.
