From celebrated New York Times best-selling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize Rick Bragg comes a poignant and wryly funny collection of essays on life in the South. Keenly observed and written with his insightful and deadpan sense of humor, Bragg explores enduring Southern truths about home, place, spirit, table, and the regions' varied geographies, including his native Alabama, Cajun country, and the Gulf Coast.

I've given 5 stars to many books but have never written a review. I now feel obligated to return to my previous "5 star" rated books and drop them down a notch. THIS is a 5 star book! I'm a 50 year old Southerner born and raised. I still live 20 minutes from where I was born. This book IS the South. I laughed, I cried, I reminisced. I miss my grandmother just a little bit more today than I did yesterday. So many stories reminded me of her. Get this book if you want to know the real South. And get this book if you're a Southerner already, I can't put into words how much this book spoke to me.
