Synopsis:
With the same emotional generosity and effortlessly compelling storytelling that made All Over But the Shoutin’ a national bestseller, Rick Bragg continues his personal history of the Deep South. This time he’s writing about his grandfather Charlie Bundrum, a man who died before Bragg was born but left an indelible imprint on the people who loved him. Drawing on their memories, Bragg reconstructs the life of an unlettered roofer who kept food on his family’s table through the worst of the Great Depression; a moonshiner who drank exactly one pint for every gallon he sold; an unregenerate brawler, who could sit for hours with a baby in the crook of his arm.

In telling Charlie’s story, Bragg conjures up the backwoods hamlets of Georgia and Alabama in the years when the roads were still dirt and real men never cussed in front of ladies. A masterly family chronicle and a human portrait so vivid you can smell the cornbread and whiskey, Ava’s Man is unforgettable.

Review:
"Bragg delivers, with deep affection, fierce familial pride, and keen, vivid prose that's as sharp and bone-bright as a butcher's knife."

Publishers Weekly, 08/06/2001

Review:
"Relatively few writers have truly caught the voice of the Southern working class...The family he tells us about is his own. Often he lets the people speak for themselves, and the authenticity of the voices and the setting grab you from the first sentence...It is the rhythm, the breaks and pauses, that make Bragg's sentences work...[I]n AVA'S MAN his style works like an amphetamine. You feel alert reading him. He creates a kind of sublime testimonial...AVA'S MAN stays with you long after you put it down. Bragg's story of his grandparents makes you want to do better, to be more honest with yourself. It is hard to think of a writer who reminds us more forcefully and wonderfully of what people and families are all about."

Robert Morgan, New York Times Book Review, 09/02/2001
