Atlanta, Georgia- Growing up in the south there are some things you simply can not get away from and one of those is the sounds of Hank Williams. In Hank Hung the Mood by Rheta Grimsley Johnson delves into this larger than life figure who life was cut too short.
What makes this book more interesting is not all the tidbits of Hank Williams trivia but the odyssey that Rheta makes in rediscovering her roots.
She speaks to love, lost love, and new love as she intertwines with the wild characters of her life. This book also captures some of the southern charm that mystifies those in the north but those in the south hold true.
As a newspaper reporter Rheta has been able to experience a wide range of events that resonate with the sharing of the southern cultural spirit.
Hank Hung the Mood is a touching memoir and is a definite joy to read. I only wish it came with an accompanied CD so that the sounds of Hank Williams could mute the outside world and bring to life the southern grace that we in the south love.
