In my role as Senior Editor at Time Inc. Books/Oxmoor House, I had the great honor to collaborate with celebrated New York Times best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize-winner, Rick Bragg, to curate this poignant and wryly funny collection of his 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 about 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 those who feel Southern at heart) or anyone who appreciates great writing.
