Dear Librarians,

HILL OF BEANS is a memoir of boyhood in the old south. Part I ends when a catastrophic fire drives us from the North Carolina mountains. Part II describes 3 years in town, a virtual captive of scary Aunt Bess. Part III is about 7 years on a South Carolina sharecropper farm.

"Turgenev meets Mark Twain in these lyrical, acutely observed recollections wherein the author narrates his Carolina past..." Kirkus, starred review.

Roy Blount, Jr., Daine McWhorter, Jonathan Galassi, Robert Morgan, and others, have also commented favorably.
