Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author of
"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, 08/06/2001Review:
"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
