Cloth, $21.95

In this delightful volume, readers can savor the work of the beloved columnist whom the New York Times has called, "one of the top three personal essayists writing in America."

With an easy style and unfailing eye for the telling detail, Hale relates stories of deceptive simplicity about the struggles and the epiphanies of ordinary life. Here we find stories of Madame Z, the Brazos Bottom fortune teller, alongside those of his annual journey to meet spring, the husband who went poof, a homing rat, cousin C.T.'s cantaloupe bomb and a very special wedding.

Read Home Spun and relish the unique perspective of an American original as he reflects on the land and people of his time.
