About this book:
"The matter is life. Not wistful maybes or glamorized memories, but the stuff of rock-hard, take-the-consequences life. Cooper's story-tellers speak in a direct, pared-down vernacular that feels like intimate, front porch gossip." -- Wilson Library Review

"The Matter Is Life gleams with sunny folklore that lifts the soul, encourages the spirit, and tickles the whole body. . . Cooper captures her reading audience with her reproduction of language spoken by the common folk -- nothing fancy, but words that give you plenty of wisdom." -- Indianapolis Star
