A Pulitzer Prize winning reporter for The New York Times, Rick Bragg talks about his first book--All Over But the Shoutin'--a memoir of his impoverished Appalachian childhood in the northeastern corner of Alabama and a tribute to the mother who single-handedly raised him. A writer of elegant prose with a down-home conversational style, Bragg talks about the challenges he's faced as a southern writer in New York and what inspired him to write this book.
