About

Overview

A National Bestselling Author
A Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author

A collection of wide-ranging and endearingly personal columns by the celebrated author and Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg, culled from his best-loved pieces in Southern Living and Garden & Gun. From his love of Tupperware (“My Affair with Tupperware”) to the decline of country music, from the legacy of Harper Lee to the metamorphosis of the pickup truck, the best way to kill fire ants, the unbridled excess of Fat Tuesday, and why any self-respecting southern man worth his salt should carry a good knife, Where I Come From is an ode to the stories and the history of the Deep South, written with tenderness, wit, and deep affection.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“A generous helping of folksy wit and charm . . . There are laugh-out-loud moments throughout.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Poignant . . . The columns are clever, unassuming, and, most notably, told in a distinctive voice. They do what good columns do: sometimes tug at your heart, sometimes make you laugh to yourself, sometimes both. You read one and then go on with your day with a better sense of what it’s like to be from somewhere.”
