Somebody Told Me: The Newspaper Stories of Rick Bragg (Vintage) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With his bestselling All Over but the Shoutin', Rick Bragg gave us memorable stories of his own childhood. In Somebody Told Me, he offers the best of his work as a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist writing the remarkable stories of others.

For twenty years, Bragg has focused his efforts on the common man. So while some of these stories are about people whose names we know-such as Susan Smith, the South Carolina mother who drowned her two sons-most are people whose names we've never heard, people who have survived tornadoes and swamps, racism and bombs. In incisive, unadorned prose that is nonetheless strikingly beautiful, these pieces rise above journalism to become literature and show the triumph of the human spirit.

About the Author

Rick Bragg's memoir Ava's Man will be published by Knopf in August 2001. He lives in New Orleans, Louisiana, and just outside Jacksonville, Alabama.
