Celia Rivenbark Review

Bill Thompson’s gentle recollections of the real South prove that he understands one very important truth: For the best stories you have to turn off the paved road. This love letter (Backyards, Bow Ties and Beauty Queens) to a time and place could only be written by someone who understands the poignancy of a faded Merita bread sign on a rusty screen door. Thompson needn’t fret about the demise of the Southern gentleman as long as he’s still on this side of the dirt.”
