One of the best memoirs I have ever read. This is not an Oprah book. All of the hardships and challenges are told with a sense of love. There is not a shred of 'poor me' or 'it's all may parents fault'. Excellent, moving and an absolute favorite.
This is a book you have to actively read, but don't let that put you off. All of the details and intricate characters are well worth the time. You can actually feel the charm and mystery of the South rolling out of the pages.
Guy humor at it's best and, well, worst. Hilarious at times, but don't be fooled, this guy is an ass. Don't expect redemption (the last story made me sick), just go with it and you'll enjoy a few laughs.
