WHERE I COME FROM Stories from the Deep South

by | Read by Rick Bragg

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The Pulitzer Prize-winning essayist who wrote ALL OVER BUT THE SHOUTIN' narrates these Southern slices of life in a tone that reminds one of smooth sour mash whiskey. Bragg inhabits these places and people with love and empathy. He reveals the wonders and joys of a simple life in an affectionate voice, while sometimes being critical of modern life's homogeneity. This collection, culled from his best-loved pieces in SOUTHERN LIVING and GARDEN AND GUN, explores the current slate of country music performers, the mutation of the pickup truck, fishing, and many other topics that might be considered mundane by some but are elevated by Bragg's writing and performance. His informal tone belies his keen observations, warmth, humor, and love for the South and the characters who live there. R.O. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
