Overview
My Father's World is a medley of memories centered around the small credit grocery operated by Mr. and Mrs. James "Red" Rutland. Little did they know when they opened their doors shortly after WWII, that the Red Star Grocery would also become bank, wedding chapel, and community center in one of the poorest interracial neighborhoods of Columbia, SC. A small child growing up in the violently changing Deep South of the 50s and 60s, the author relates hilarious and riveting parables of the customers who came to the family's store for friendship and compassion as often as they did for the groceries they charged to "The Book." A classic in the Faulkner tradition.
