Description: Scott Brunner spent countless childhood afternoons roaming the hills and hollows of his grandparents' small farm near Parrish, Alabama, picking peas, fishing with his grandfather, and eating his grandmother's fried apple pies. Those experiences, and others like them, formed the basis for the unforgettable essays that make up this book.

In Due South, Brunner offers a wonderful collection of warm and wise observations and reminiscences about life, family, relationships, and Southern culture and language. From the all-purpose Southern disclaimer "Bless your heart!" (as in "Bless her heart, Kathie Lee didn't know those clothes were made by nine-year-old Honduran children") to the particular exoticism of Southern town and county names (like Eastaboga, Nitta Yuma, and Hot Coffee) to the universal fine points of family life ("Why can't diapers come with an indicator telling you what's inside?"; "Why won't my twenty-month-old daughter eat meat?"), Due South finds humor, insight, and inspiration in the details of life as it is lived day in and day out.

As satisfying, soothing, and occasionally surprising as a dish of turnip greens with a dash of pepper sauce, Due South is a book to be read and savored.
