Stories of the south

Book report.
Author Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize winner for his bestselling book “All over but the shoutin’ has published a compilations of his writings taken from various columns and articles he had written for newspapers and magazines titled, “Where I come from: Stories from the Deep South.”  Where he came from varies between Alabama and Georgia.  Autobiographical, humor, biographical, and more.  Non-fiction 2020.  
I had also recently read Rick Bragg’s book, “The greatest cook in the World: Tales from my mama’s table.  Autobiographical, biographies of various family cooks and their caricatures with background stories, southern humor and recipes from Buttermilk biscuits, cornbread, BBQ’d pig’s feet, to how to prepare and cook an Opossum.  For both books be prepared to laugh yourself silly.  Both of these titles are available in audio book form and read by the author.  Even though the printed version might be hilarious, the audio books will bring you to tears of laughter.  Sorry, no suspense, mystery or romance in these two titles.  Just southern barefoot humor.

I come from a family who migrated from the parched red dirt Plaines of southern rural Oklahoma. Migrating to blue collar working class community of East Los Angeles. There is where I was born. I am Mr. Writermelon. I can only write what my grammar and spell checker allows. I am neither profound nor profane. Boy howdy! Send comment to:
