Summary (From the publisher):

Ruth Grey lives in a tiny Illinois town. She extracts what small pleasures and graces she can from the broken people who inhabit it.

Her relationships with mother May and brother Matt are terrible. They torment her in many ways. Ruth is left to survive on her own resources, which are meager. She struggles along, subsisting on crumbs of affection meted out by her aunt Sid and, later her screwed-up husband Ruby.
