Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

An autobiography that begins with one's birth begins too late...So begins Mary Lee Settle's stunning memoir, which interweaves her own life with those of her grandmother and other family members to create a colorful quilt of West Virginia life that spans more than a century. One of the most respected Southern writers of our age, Mary Lee Settle offers us a glimpse of American history--through the eyes of one fascinating family.

"A classic American memoir...to love as well as to read, a book to pass from hand to hand, generation to generation." --Boston Globe

"Settle has preserved for us a moment in the South's history palpable as the trumpet vines and rocking chairs of a long-departed front-porch afternoon." --New York Times Book Review

Review:

This lively memoir has an unusual biographical twist--it focuses on an era well before the author Mary Lee Settle was even born. Not content to take the usual journey from childhood to old age, Settle instead focuses on the life and times of her own West Virginian Grandmother Addie. By exploring the roots of her family tree, Settle can give a broader perspective to her own life, her relationship with her mother and Grandmother, and the attitudes which she inherited from them.

Addie gives a fascinating insight into the culture of gentrified white Southerners at the turn of the century, a culture which ousted the young Addie for her scandalous relationship with a man who was far above her in status and class. Through meticulous research of family documents and court papers, Settle has painted a very personal but very telling portrait of a bygone era, and a life lived so long ago.
