    PDF/EPUB Hillary Jordan µ µ Mudbound Epub µ mudbound mobile, Mudbound PDF/EPUBI had sworn off any and all novels dealing with racial themes set in the South There is only so much self flagellating I can do in a year in penance for things in which I had no part Certainly I realize that the theme is worth exploring and that if you want to write a book set in the South especially between the years covering Reconstruction through the Civil Rights era race is going to play a part This is all well and good and admirable in that examining the past through the gauze of fiction can get at some of the smaller truths and nuances that non fiction just can't I was just weary of it But a galley came in for this book and I wish I
