Description

My Southern Journey From celebrated New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Rick Bragg, comes a poignant and wryly funny collection of essays on life in the south. 

Keenly observed and written with his insightful and deadpan sense of humor, he explores enduring Southern truths about home, place, spirit, table, and the regions' varied geographies, including his native Alabama, Cajun country, and the Gulf Coast. Everything is explored, from regional obsessions from college football and fishing, to mayonnaise and spoonbread, to the simple beauty of a fish on the hook.

Collected from over a decade of his writing, with many never-before-published essays written specifically for this edition, My Southern Journey is an entertaining and engaging read, especially for Southerners (or feel Southern at heart) and anyone who appreciates great writing.

    I've read every book by Rick Bragg, and like many others I look forward to Southern Living in order to read his column......however I make my self wait until I finish the rest in order to savor it! Rick Bragg is a rare treasure and I'll be ever thankful I found him. I grew up in the South and his stories are spot on.
  • Not enough of Bragg anywhere!

    Ive read all his books, I subscribe to southern living just for his column. There is no other writer that captures the many characters and locales of the South. The book is very good, it goes without saying. It's time for more books, Rick. It's time for an autobiography. If not now, when? Get Busy!
  • Amazing book!

    I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. I can't wait to buy it for my Alabama born husband. I love reading Rick Bragg in Southern Living every month. Mr. Bragg is a rare talent.
