The setting is Alexandria, Mississippi, where one Mother’s Day a little boy named Robin Cleve Dufresnes was found hanging from a tree in his parents’ yard. Twelve years later Robin’s murder is still unsolved and his family remains devastated. So it is that Robin’s sister Harriet—unnervingly bright, insufferably determined, and unduly influenced by the fiction of Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson–sets out to unmask his killer. Aided only by her worshipful friend Hely, Harriet crosses her town’s rigid lines of race and caste and burrows deep into her family’s history of loss. Filled with hairpin turns of plot and “a bustling, ridiculous humanity worthy of Dickens” (The New York Times Book Review), The Little Friend is a work of myriad enchantments by a writer of prodigious talent.

 Definitely the worst book I’ve ever finished reading

December 18, 2018

Boring and pointless without a resolution to anything. Not a likable character in the book, just a lot of depressing yuck. No conclusion at all, I honestly thought I was missing the last part of the story. Can I get a refund on the hours of my life I wasted??
I’m a born and bred Mississippian, so I have to ask if this lady is serious or making fun of us? Meth wasn’t even a thing in rural Mississippi in the late 70’s. No one was a meth head back then, not even the red necks. And NOBODY had maids by that time, rich or poor. A true southern lady prided herself on running her own household.
I can’t believe this woman won a Pulitzer Prize! What’s happening??? This book is a blow to my faith in humanity. AWFUL!
 A seriously important novel

October 22, 2017

I have just read this novel for the second time. The first time I read it, it was shocking, scary and heart-breaking. I came back to it for a second, more deliberative reading, after hearing a book reviewer say that ‘Wuthering Heights’ was the most important novel of the 19th century – and perhaps of all time, and my immediate reaction was that I could think of many novels that were more important for the 20th – 21st centuries. ‘The Little Friend’ is, in my opinion, a seriously important novel. Not room here to discuss in detail, but a few pointers. A story of the South, set mainly in around 1980 (as far as I could date it), looking back through the generations to the building of the Cleve family home, Tribulation House, where Judge Cleve died leaving four daughters in the late 1960s, and the final ruin of the old home. His great-grand-daughter, Harriet, was a baby when her brother was found hanging from a tree in the yard, as the family were about to sit down for a Mothers Day supper, twelve years earlier, and that unsolved mystery, and the after-effects of Robin’s death loom very largely in the family, and he is not forgotten in the town. At the same time, there is another family, the Ratliffs – the grandmother can remember working in the cotton fields near Tribulation House – and their life is contrasted with that of the Cleves. Farish Ratcliff is more vivid than Dickens’s Bill Sykes, in my opinion. And there are the servants – Ida is a key character, providing not only domestic labour for a pittance, but giving shape to Harriet’s days, while her mother, still trapped in a drugged, grieving half-life, can wake to a complete confusion of night and day.

The author seems to lightly drop allusions into her writing – black birds, sometimes crows, feature regularly, so that I had old tunes ‘sing a song of blackbirds …’ for one, in the back of my mind – maybe you’ll make more out of it than I could, but I think her main concern is the damage done to people, especially children, by circumstances beyond their control (and I thought of Dickens often in this, apart from her earlier novel ‘The Greenfinch’). But in the end, in spite of the painful, scary and shocking aspects of this book, I sensed some optimism: no happy-ever-after ending, but possibilities. No firm solutions, or resolutions, but glimmerings of hope that some aspects of all these lives might change for the better.
