What better setting for Salli’s fiction, as intimate as a diary, involving family, sex, and suspense. Salli is masterful at writing character-revealing dialogue; there’s nothing phony about her people. What you won’t see when driving through a town, A Notion of Pelicans reveals. It’s a perfect book to take with you on a trip. But don’t wait till a vacation comes. Curl up with Salli’s engaging book now.
