Janisse Ray: Author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood

You know I love free stuff. Here’s another one:

One of my favorite books of all time is Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, by Janisse Ray. She weaves the story of her family and her upbringing in a south Georgia junkyard with her love and mourning for the Southeast’s disappearing longleaf pine habitat. It is one of the most beautiful and original works I have read in years.

The author is appearing in Atlanta tonight and tomorrow, as part of Emory’s Creative Writing Reading Series. You can read more about Ray here.
