I just submitted The Last days of Dogtown by Anita Diamant. From the Author of The Red Tent, this is Anita Diamant's new novel. When city folk hear the words "I'm from Dogtown", they know the people are no good. Dogtown is full of the outcasts, Ruth, a true African, Sammy, whose grandma runs the local whore house, Molly and Sally, the ladies in the whore House, and Ollie, sweet lovable ollie. This novel follows the residents of Dogtown as the town crumbles.
