September paperback releases offer good choices for reading groups

America's favorite Southern author returns with a delightfully down-home look at the life of his ornery grandfather, Charlie Bundrum, a tough-as-nails moonshiner and roofer who—along with his equally ornery wife Ava—raised seven children in the backwoods of Alabama. Bragg, who never knew his grandfather, interviewed a slew of relatives about Charlie, a man admired for his family loyalty, his honesty and his unabashed courage (he once stood up to a passel of drunks armed with an ax, a hammer and a shotgun). A moving collection of stories inspired by Charlie, this wistful memoir captures a long-gone era in rural America. Bragg's newest entry in the chronicles of his unforgettable family will amply satisfy fans of All Over but the Shoutin'. A reading group guide is available in print and online at www.vintagebooks.com/read.
