Synopsis:
This haunting, harrowing, gloriously moving recollection of a life on the American margin is the story of Rick Bragg, who grew up dirt-poor in northeastern Alabama, seemingly destined for either the cotton mills or the penitentiary, and instead became a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times. It is the story of Braggs father, a hard-drinking man with a murderous temper and the habit of running out on the people who needed him most.But at the center of this soaring memoir is Braggs mother, who went eighteen years without a new dress so that her sons could have school clothes and picked other peoples cotton so that her children wouldn't have to live on welfare alone. Evoking these lives--and the country that shaped and nourished them--with artistry, honesty, and compassion, Rick Bragg brings home the love and suffering that lie at the heart of every family. The result is unforgettable.

Review:
"[Bragg's] memoir is a model of humility combined with pride in one's accomplishments."

Kirkus, 07/01/1997

Review:
"Rick Bragg has written the kind of book that causes us to see ourselves more clearly because it corrects and heightens our vision, and through this vision we see for the first time the humanity of others and are able to imagine, if only for a moment, that unbridgeable divides can somehow, because of what we have learned we have in common, be surmounted."

New York Times Book Review, 09/14/1997
