"Bloodroot" marks the powerful debut of a gifted writer. The title is the name of a native Virginia plant, whose roots bleed red when cut. This startling, imagistic novel takes its cue from a true event: In 1936, in a small town near Charlottesville, Virginia, an aging black caretaker and his sister shot dead a white sheriff acting on orders to turn them off their land. This won the 1999 AWP/Thomas Dunne Books Award. View more info
