Item description for Coming Home: Life, Love, and All Things Southern by Robert Inman...
In this warm, amusing, delightfully entertaining -- and often moving -- collection, acclaimed novelist Robert Inman writes about the things that matter, the things that touch heart and soul.
He writes of growing up in Elba, Alabama, and of adventures with his boyhood friend "Booger" Winston. He writes, too, of life and love, home and family.
Longtime Inman fans will be pleased to hear that a whole section of this book is devoted to the Southern wit and wisdom of Delbert Earle and his great uncle Orester.
Like his novels, Coming Home is rooted in the joys and fascinations of Inman's small-town upbringing, where, as he puts it, "You get to look people in the eye day after day and learn who they are and how to get along with them".

A collection of life's observations Mar 9, 2001
Robert Inman is the author of genial southern novels such as "Dairy Queen Days" and a keen observer of the human condition. He is also one of the best guides to the writing life, as sampled in the final chapter of his autobiography "Coming Home, Life, Love and All Things Southern". Inman takes a clear-eyed look at the southern style of life and the reasons we southern people are the way we are. The stories and reminices are tender and warmharted and a treat to read. The best part of thei book is Inman's explaination of why we in the south always ask "who are your people?" and the way we try to find the common link. As Mr. Inman says, we are just trying to say "I am prepared to like you, and would be honered to be your friend...". A wonderful read, a joy for its warmth and quick wit.
