The Beans of Egypt, Maine by Carolyn Chute( Book )

27 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and Danish and held by 2,310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are families like the Beans all over America. They live on the wrong side of town in mobile homes strung with Christmas lights all year round. The women are often pregnant, the men drunk and just out of jail, and the children too numerous to count. In The Beans of Egypt, Maine we meet the God-fearing Earlene Pomerleau and experience her obsession with the whole swarming Bean tribe. There's Cousin Rubie, a boozer and a brawler, tall Aunt Roberta, the earth mother surrounded by countless clinging babies, and Beal, sensitive, often gentle but doomed by the violence within him. Vividly told, at times both funny and sad, Chute gives life and dignity to an unforgettable cast of American characters

The school on Heart's Content Road by Carolyn Chute( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The school on Heart's Content Road spirals out from the story of Mickey Gammon, a disaffected fifteen-year-old dropout who has been evicted from his home by his overwrought half-brother. With the help of his new friend, Rex York, the captain of the local militia, Mickey is introduced to the secretive world of the Settlement. Run by a man known to many as 'The Prophet, ' the Settlement is a rural cooperative in alternative energy, farm produce, and locally made goods. Falsely demonized by the media as a compound of sin, the Settlement's true nature remains foreign to outsiders. It is at the Settlement where Mickey's life collides with that of another deserted child, six-year-old Jane--a cunning, beautiful girl of mixed race, whose mother is in jail on trumped-up drug charges. 'Secret Agent' Jane prowls the Settlement in her heart-shaped sunglasses, imagining that her childish plans to bring down the community will reunite her with her mother. As they struggle to adjust to their new, complex surrogate family, Mickey and Jane witness the mounting unrest within the Settlement's ranks, which soon builds to a shocking and devastating crescendo. Vehement and poetic, The School on Heart's Content Road questions the nature of family, struggle, and authority in an intensely diverse nation. It is an urgent plea from the disenfranchised who, though disregarded and shoved to the fringes of society, refuse to be silenced
Merry men by Carolyn Chute( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1985 The Beans of Egypt, Maine came into this world, the unique creation of Carolyn Chute. A microcosm, Egypt instantly became part of America's fictional landscape. Three years later Ms. Chute gave us, in Letourneau's Used Auto Parts, a further - and broader - take on a world in miniature. But hold on. In Merry Men Egypt, Maine, is not so small, as Chute demonstrates so tellingly in her lamination of that society. There are the Barringtons, a classic Egypt clan, complete with Unk Walty, who does all the cooking and devotes his spare time to constructing lifelike and life-size sculptures of the denizens of the area, and his nephew, Lloyd, who at age 8 and 3/4 is widely - and rightly - known as Super Tree Man. On to the upper middle class, as exemplified by the family of Dr. William Curry, who has just died. How his widow, Phoebe, and his assorted children deal with the sudden loss is, to put it mildly, a wonder to behold. This is only the beginning of Carolyn Chute's saga, an epic in which she remarkably pulls together all the strands until we have before us an amazing and coherent and altogether rewarding picture of a place unlike any other but eerily similar to most
