Rick Bragg says Southern storytellers speak as if they’re slowly chewing each word, savoring the sound and meaning. And that’s just the way he presents this collection of his published essays. His presentation isn’t labored or slow just for effect. It’s just this tale spinner’s way of presenting the story, neither too slow nor too fast. While the entries were published in print, mostly in Bragg’s “Southern Journal” entries for SOUTHERN LIVING magazine, they clearly were written for the ear as well as the eye. His use of metaphor and rich descriptions comes across especially effectively when spoken. The topics cover Southern life, particularly family and everyday activities. The length of each entry makes this audiobook ideal for commuters, although motorists may be tempted to take a side trip just to hear another tale. R.C.G.
