Publisher's Summary

Spend an evening with famous southern writer Rick Bragg, listening to him as I did, then wonder as I did, why there wasn't a black face in the house.

Maybe there isn't a reason. Maybe there is. Rick Bragg says that no writer tells the whole truth. I tried to...As I saw it. That didn't go over to well...With a special someone in Rick's life. As you will see.

    Story
    "Opened up uncharted perspective for me..."

    I didn't previously think that a non-black person would ever make note of the absence please f color in a room, but here it is clearly noticed and analyzed. Bevis provided a sort of new perspective which really challenges every type of reader... and writer, to think about the "code words" which appear on a page and question why the author truly chooses to use them. Good read, but short.

    "Insightful short story"
    Where does Not a Black Face in the House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an interesting and insightful short story that poses a not so popular question. It is well written and the author supports his point.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Not a Black Face in the House?

    Mr. Bevis speaks of hidden code words we use that elicit a guttural reaction in our readers/listeners and asks what we would be without these codes.


    What three words best describe Bettye Zoller Seitz’s voice?

    strong, mature,


    Who was the most memorable character of Not a Black Face in the House and why?

    Not a Black Face in the House is a first person account by the author.


    Any additional comments?

    There was a mispronounced word and at least one instance where extraneous sounds in the recording should have been edited. The narrator said the words "quote" and "unquote" in places that seemed unnecessary and distracting.
