To Tell the Truth

30 Jun

I just read an interesting interview in the current Poets & Writers magazine. Naomi Jackson’s debut novel, The Star Side of Bird Hill, was released this month. In a short interview, she says:

And while I always had a strong Christian faith, I was suspicious of using religion to marginalize people or to deny aspects of myself. I chose to stick with the ‘tell the truth’ message I’d learned in church and cast aside the “don’t tell truths that bring shame on your family” part of my upbringing

.

That’s what I’m about.
