There are few audiobooks that should be sold with a bib. Georgia-born and raised humorist Roy Blount, Jr.’s, delicious descriptions of Southern cooking would make anyone’s mouth water. But he doesn’t stop there. Don’t try to drink anything (you’ll spit or choke) while Blount talks about everything from boiled peanuts to fancy dinner parties to summer vacations and more. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud observations like why he doesn’t like being called a “sophisticated redneck” and how Southerners sometimes make animal noises when they eat from the man best known for appearances on public radio programs like “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Wait, Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!” LONG TIME LEAVING is one audiobook that will have you wishing you had more time to stay. R.O.
