Yesterday I finished Lewis DeSoto's, "A Blade of Grass". I will try to be gracious about this one. It is one of the most if not the most depressing book I have ever read. There may be one that surpasses this but it escapes my memory at the moment and maybe if someone else has read it they can tell me something positive or uplifting about it. It is beautifully written. But from beginning to end one terrible thing after another happens. There is no better way to say it. The protagonist never finds redemption and all relationships are grim. There, I'm done.
