Content descriptions

General Note: Subtitle from book jacket.
Formatted Contents Note: Preface: raised to leave: some thoughts on "culture" -- Dimestore -- Recipe box -- Kindly nervous -- Lady lessons -- Marble cake and moonshine -- Big river -- On Lou's porch -- Lightning storm -- Driving Miss Daisy crazy; or, losing the mind of the South -- Goodbye to the sunset man -- Blue heaven -- A life in books -- Angels passing -- The little locksmith.
Summary, etc.: Evenly divided between a book about Smith’s process and her life, first as a Southern mountain child and, later, as the parent of a schizophrenic child, this book is interesting and compelling. Despite being surrounded by loving family and being blessed with an active imagination, Lee copes with a mentally ill mother. Later, her son’s mental illness and early death brings her to the breaking point but she is saved by her writing.
