Lee Smith's memoir of her roots in the small coal town of Grundy, Virginia, and her career as a writer and teacher is enhanced by the smooth, seasoned narration of Linda Stephens. As Stephens shares Smith's collection of essays, which explore the indelible influence that the Appalachian region had on her imagination and creative life, listeners will begin to believe she IS the author. Bringing to life a forgotten world of local dime stores and a distinctive region with its own passions and eccentricities, Stephens casts a spell and breathes insight into Smith's candid observations on her early life and on the long transformation of her crafts--as both writer and teacher. An entertaining listen, touched with nostalgia but not sentimental. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2016]
