Like everyone else I’ve heard White on NPR but this is the first of her books I’ve read. This is sort of a memoir of her life in Florida told in anecdotal fits and starts and starring herself, her mother who runs off with a boat load of anthropologists, the local ornithologists who put abandoned wild turkey eggs in Bailey’s bed when she’s running a fever to properly incubate them, the alligator pod seduced by Jane Austen, and the grandparent who brought in a twenty-foot model of the Titanic to help her teach her first-graders to read. And many more. Fun.

A thought: This book would make for great bedtime stores.

    Don’t you just love this book? It lives on my nightstand, and has for years. You are absolutely right about the perfect bedside book. I read a story in her voice. Wonderful!

    I loved “Quite a Time for Plums”. It reminded me of half the ladies in my small town. I am adding this one to my listening list.
