When Oswald T. Campbell's doctor orders him to head to the warm South for his health, a chance phone call finds him a room in Lost River, Alabama. In the course of a year there, he has adventures both absurd, such as finding himself in an Accordian Association meeting instead of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, and touching, such as getting involved in the life of an abandoned little girl who loves the lame redbird that has taken up lodgings in the town grocery. Fannie Flagg reads her novel with a honeyed voice that brings to mind one of the ladies of Lost River telling a favorite story. Her slightly tart Southern humor keeps the story charming and light on the schmaltz. And, yes, listeners will enjoy the story anytime, not just at Christmas. J.A.S.
