Thank you for affirming what I sought to express. It is not on my shelves either. My kin are from the same places, but the story is not written up to the standards that a classic should carry.

I find it depressing that people no longer no how to differentiate between quality writing and pop tripe. As long as publishers can make money off it, they feed the stream.

Thanks, too, for your recommendations on alternatives.
