Summary
Growing up, Frances Mayes longed to leave the small town of Fitzgerald, Georgia, but now she has been drawn back to explore her past. Beautifully written and very intimate, this memoir evokes the Deep South in all its steamy warmth, fascinating characters, murky depths and disturbing undercurrents. With her signature style and grace, Mayes delves deeply into her roots, the bitter and sweet stories of her complicated family, and Southern traditions and her connections to them. A lyrically written, searingly honest and affecting account of Mayes' rediscovery of her past
Summary
The best-selling author of Under the Tuscan Sun shares the story of her youth in the American South and her decision to return to the places that shaped her early ideals, a journey marked by her regional travels and growing appreciation for Southern writers
