Über diesen Titel:
It is New Orleans during the Depression, and Shelton Lafleur is eight years old, a black boy mysteriously adopted by a wealthy young white woman confined to her bed. One day he tumbles from the top branches of a live oak tree, crippling himself: for life. But sweet deliverance arrives in the form of a wily man named Minou, who takes Shelton into his lively family and under his worldly tutelage. Not only does Minou teach . Shelton the means of survival in a South deeply divided by race, but he holds the secret: of Shelton's birth and ultimately the source of Shelton's redemption.
Rezension: In The Wrecked, Blessed Body of Shelton Lafleur, a revered artist looks back on the adventures and sufferings of his childhood with compassion, wisdom, and humor. As an 8-year-old, Shelton Lafleur runs away from his foster home in the New Orleans Garden District. While trying to find refuge in a towering oak tree in one of the city's parks, he falls. The catastrophic accident leaves both legs crippled, determining the course of his life. After years in a grim orphanage, Shelton runs away again in search of his roots. A street artist named Minou befriends him, and ultimately becomes his mentor and inspiration.
