Description
A haunting memoir by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, All Over but the Shoutin' presents a gripping account of people struggling to make sense and solidity of life's capricious promises. As he tells the wrenching story of his own family's life in the dirt-poor Alabama hills--where he got out, but has never been quite about to leave--Bragg attempts to both atone for and to avenge the mistakes and cruelties of his past.

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

This haunting, harrowing, gloriously moving recollection of a life on the American margin is the story of Rick Bragg, who grew up dirt-poor in northeastern Alabama, seemingly destined for either the cotton mills or the penitentiary, and instead became a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times. It is the story of Bragg's father, a hard-drinking man with a murderous temper and the habit of running out on the people who needed him most.

But at the center of this soaring memoir is Bragg's mother, who went eighteen years without a new dress so that her sons could have school clothes and picked other people's cotton so that her children wouldn't have to live on welfare alone. Evoking these lives--and the country that shaped and nourished them--with artistry, honesty, and compassion, Rick Bragg brings home the love and suffering that lie at the heart of every family. The result is unforgettable.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
