reviewed on + 9 more book reviews


Bailey White writes about her tiny home town, a Georgia hamlet full of fascinating neighbors, overstuffed homes, and an unusual number of swans. In the tradition of such authors as Garrison Keillor and Fannie Flagg, she tells warm and funny stories about what happens when her Mama decides to train a taxidermist to cook, about teaching school with the help of the Titanic and a one-eared intellectual, about the challenge of gardening in Georgia, where "vegetation does not know its place".
