Summary
  • "This family history centered around three women from three generations spans the Civil War through the Jazz Age. Fans of Sallie Bingham's work will especially appreciate her parents Mary and Barry's romance that unfolds in letters and finally results in marriage. Bingham beautifully demonstrates an inheritance of emotion, morality, ideology, and most lasting of all, irreverence. Sallie Bingham has published four short story collections, four novels, a memoir, and several plays. Bingham was a director of the National Book Critics Circle, and founded the Kentucky Foundation for Women and the Sallie Bingham Archive for Women's Papers and Culture at Duke University"--
  • Imagine a forgotten blue box containing a snarl of letters, memoirs, college bluebooks, yellowed manuscripts, and deeply creased articles--the earthly remains of three ancestors. From just such a discovery, Sallie Bingham has woven a family history centered around three Southern women from three generations, spanning the Civil War through the Jazz Age. Bingham beautifully demonstrates an inheritance of emotion, morality, ideology, and most lasting of all, irreverence.--From publisher description
