Mama Learns to Drive: Stories That Celebrate Mothers | [Donald Davis]

Mama Learns to Drive: Stories That Celebrate Mothers

If you've ever been in the car while a loved one was learning to drive, then think of this as cheap therapy! Learning to drive has occasioned emotions ranging from reasonable caution to unbridled terror. Learning under the watchful eye of one's spouse is an added challenge. Undertaking the task with anxious children in the backseat can only heighten the sensory richness of the moment.

Audible Editor Reviews

This charming, and hilarious, collection of childhood reminiscences is a wonderful showcase of Southern storytelling. The stories concern, among other incidents, Davis's memory of his mother learning to drive. He also gives some family background that makes these stories endearing. An experienced storyteller, Davis is perfect. He has a mellow Appalachian accent that is skilled and nuanced. One need only see him telling these tales to get a fuller experience.

Publisher's Summary

If you've ever been in the car while a loved one was learning to drive, then think of this as cheap therapy!

Learning to drive has occasioned emotions ranging from reasonable caution to unbridled terror. Learning under the watchful eye of one's spouse is an added challenge. Undertaking the task with anxious children in the backseat can only heighten the sensory richness of the moment. Davis recalls his mother's driving lessons through the objective eye of a patient and restrained child, in contrast with his little brother, whose oft-shouted refrain, "You're going to kill us all!" rings in memory.

    When I have a little money I buy books and if there is any left over, I buy food.

    "CLEAN & HILARIOUS a Rare & Delightful Combination!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mama Learns to Drive the most enjoyable?

    I have been so disappointed lately with really great stories being ruined by filthy language or squeaky clean not so funny "comedies". This was refreshingly everything I hoped it would be.


    What other book might you compare Mama Learns to Drive to and why?

    I wish I knew. I have yet to research Christian Comedy but what an idea!


    Have you listened to any of Donald Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I will check them out.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did make me laugh, wasn't that the point? ;)


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Donald Davis!
