Watson is an extraordinarily talented writer, and this book does not disappoint. Somehow, he is able to take very delicate subject matter and convey it clearly and beautifully without it being offensive or off-putting. Miss Jane is a beautiful story set in Watson's fictional Mercury, Mississippi, also the setting for his novel The Heaven of Mercury. I selected it upon news of Watson's untimely death and highly recommend all of his work.
The narration was fine enough but there were some sentences that seemed to trip up the reader, causing her to slow down and read. each. word. rhythmically. with a syntax I don't think Watson intended. Just sounds awkward, but it doesn't happen often enough to make it a true concern.
