The Better Than Therapy Book Club - "Ava's Man" by Rick Bragg
With emotional generosity and effortlessly compelling storytelling, Rick Bragg writes about his grandfather Charlie Bundrum, a man who died before Bragg was born but left an indelible imprint on the people who loved him. Drawing on their memories, Bragg reconstructs the life of an unlettered roofer who kept food on his family’s table through the worst of the Great Depression; a moonshiner who drank exactly one pint for every gallon he sold; an unregenerate brawler, who could sit for hours with a baby in the crook of his arm. A masterly family chronicle and a human portrait so vivid you can smell the cornbread and whiskey,Ava’s Man is unforgettable.
The Better Than Therapy Book Club meets on the last Wednesday of each month at 2pm in the Boardroom. Everyone is welcome!
