Welcome to the unique world of Bailey WhiteHer aunt Belle may take you to see the alligators that she has taught to bellow on command. Her uncle Jimbuddy may appall you with his knack for losing pieces of himself. Most of all, you may succumb utterly to the charms of Bailey's Mama- who might take you to Rosey's a North Florida juke loint so raunchy it scared Ernest Hemingway, and then tuck you into an antique bed that has the disconcerning habit of folding up on people while they're asleep. On her front porch is a car, a bathtub, and a rocking chair. Bailey's indeligible vignettes of Southern eccentricities have entranced millions of people who heard her read them on National Public Radio. (Southern Lake Wobegon). 229 pages
