WHERE I COME FROM is a collection of wide-ranging and endearingly personal columns by celebrated author, newspaper columnist 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, this book is an ode to the stories and the history of the Deep South, written with tenderness, wit and deep affection.
