Ironweed

Ironweed, by William Kennedy [adult fiction]

by Monica, 12th grader

This is a fairly good book about a man named Francis Phelan, who has had something of a falling out with life. Ironweed (which won the Pulitzer Prize for Kennedy) follows Francis to the brink of disaster and then back to redemption. It’s an interesting book and, like other Pulitzer-Prize-winning books, it offers something different — and different is good.
