In this intricate, insightful, and deeply moving work of nonfiction, author/narrator Imani Perry meanders through the South, from New Orleans and DC to the Georgia coast and the West Virginia hills. With a blend of history and personal stories, she explores the South—its culture, language, geography, food, politics—and the crucial role it has played in American history and mythology. Her musical narration is as beautifully assured as her prose, full of the rhythm and cadences of her native Alabama. Though much of the audiobook is a reckoning with racism and white supremacy, it is also a gorgeous, complicated love letter—love you can hear in every sentence Perry speaks. Overflowing with urgent stories and narrated with so much passion and grace, this is a must-listen. L.S. 2022 National Book Award Winner © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
