Coming Home: Life, Love, and All Things Southern
In this warm, amusing, delightfully entertaining -- and often moving -- collection, acclaimed novelist Robert Inman writes about the things that matter, the things that touch heart and soul.
He writes of growing up in Elba, Alabama, and of adventures with his boyhood friend "Booger" Winston. He writes, too, of life and love, home and family.
Longtime Inman fans will be pleased to hear that a whole section of this book is devoted to the Southern wit and wisdom of Delbert Earle and his great uncle Orester.
Like his novels, Coming Home is rooted in the joys and fascinations of Inman's small-town upbringing, where, as he puts it, "You get to look people in the eye day after day and learn who they are and how to get along with them".
