Jan Beatty captures the beauty of Pittsburgh head-on in "Mad River." She also taps into the pain of growing- whether as a child or an adult- with real, raw emotion. There's a certain sadness that runs through this collection that is tinged with amusement, curiosity, and frankness. From "Not Thinking about Gardenias" to "Grabbing at Beauty," Beatty's voice continuously surprises and challenges the reader.
