    Rick Bragg is an exceptional writer...

    There's a reason this author is a Pulitzer Prize winner. His writing is amazing... I've read all his books - some more than once - and would recommend every one of them. This particular book is a collection of his newspaper writings, which will give you a sense for his incredible voice and range. While I love the stories he tells (mostly about family and the ways of the deep south), it's how he tells the story that draws you in. It is impossible for me to adequately describe the sheer pleasure one will take in reading his work. Let me say it this way: if he were writing about something as pedestrian as the entries in a phone book, you'd clamor for a copy and devour it.

    does he wear shoes when in NY?

    Bragg's words are rhythmic and consistent with the topics and people he writes about and for.
