Summary
"The Grands", partially based on family legend, is the author's most discursive Tennessee story. Carolyn lived in Nashville until she was twelve, when she moved with her father and brother to Gatesville, Texas to join her new stepmother, who owned a Coryell County ranch. In the summers, she would ride the train back to Tennessee for long visits. Many years later she would piece together the family stories she heard those summers, making up details that she missed after she fell asleep on the front porches of her aunts and uncles. The implied multiple viewpoint and the suggestion that everyone is an unreliable narrator, or at least an incomplete one when telling family stories, are the underlying givens in this dreamy evocation of past lives"--Forward
