Daniel Woodrell

"You must've heard about what Dollys are, ain't you, mister? . . . Well, I'm a Dolly, bred 'n' buttered, and that's how I know Dad's dead."

(From his 2006 novel, Winter's Bone.  The 2010 movie of the same title was just nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.  It was shot in part in Douglas County, Missouri.  Ava, which is the county seat and only incorporated city in the Douglas County, was founded in 1871 and named by my great-great-great-grandfather, James Hailey.)
