A New York Times Notable Book of the
Year

This haunting, harrowing, gloriously moving recollection
of a life on the American margin is the story of Rick Bragg, who grew
up dirt-poor in northeastern Alabama, seemingly destined for either the
cotton mills or the penitentiary, and instead became a Pulitzer
Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times. It is the story of
Bragg's father, a hard-drinking man with a murderous temper and the
habit of running out on the people who needed him most.
But at
the center of this soaring memoir is Bragg's mother, who went eighteen
years without a new dress so that her sons could have school clothes and
picked other people's cotton so that her children wouldn't have to live
on welfare alone. Evoking these lives--and the country that shaped and
nourished them--with artistry, honesty, and compassion, Rick Bragg
brings home the love and suffering that lie at the heart of every
family. The result is unforgettable.
