An extraordinary novel. The writing is wonderful. The story is lovely and heartbreaking at the same time. The characters are wonderfully drawn. And yet Ruby is perhaps one of the single most disturbing novels ever written. If you're particularly sensitive to human ugliness, the brutality in this book is likely too much for you. It's not easy to stomach. The most disturbing images from Ruby still haunt me.
