This book was mis-shelved in 811s, but I decided to cover it here briefly because I think it’s a delightful project (described by the subtitle). The poets providing reminiscences of growing up in Alabama include Andrew Glaze, Andrew Hudgins, and Rodney Jones. Others include Fanny Flagg, Sena Jeter Naslund and Wayne Greehaw. The essays sport such fascinating titles as “The Ghosts in My Grandmother’s Attic” and “Thunderhoof and the Mantel Clock.” I suspect there’s much enjoyment to be had in this book for anyone who loves Alabama.
