My Southern Journey - True Stories from the Heart of the South by Rick Bragg

My Southern Journey - True Stories from the Heart of the South by Rick Bragg

Time Inc. Books (September 2015)

In my role as Senior Editor at Time Inc. Books, I worked with celebrated author and Pulitzer Prize-winner, Rick Bragg, to curate this poignant and wryly funny collection of his essays on life in the South, which landed on The New York Times Bestseller List for multiple weeks in a row and won a Time Inc. prestigious Henry Luce Award. 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. Accolades: multiple weeks on The New York Times Bestseller List, Time Inc.'s prestigious Henry Luce Award   Get your copy here!
