    This is a book about stories and storytelling, and especially about oral narrative.It contains a lot of stories, but not in the way that, say, a collection of short stories contains a lot of stories At one level this book is a single story But in telling the story, the narrators there is than one repeatedly get sidetracked and start off in new narrative directions in order to tell other stories, the purpose of which, sometimes, is to further illuminate the main story Then again, som...

    One of the best series in the Southern literature canon I read this book every few years in the summer All I can tell you is its like a lighter version of Faulkner, less cartoonish than Flannery O Connor with a taste of Harper Lee thrown in The author has d...

    The Last of How It Was is the best book I almost never read I grew up lollygagging in living rooms and kitchens listening to family gossip, soap operas and grapevine news flashes Keeping a low profile and an open ear was the pipeline to all the best information the world had to offer, courtesy of my mother and aunts So too, does Pearson s fictional Louis Benfield, gain his education in the Last of How It Was A rambling tale of a fictitious Southern family, chock full of strange yet loveable characters, it tells stories of a better, gentler time, from a South I never visited but feel right at home in thanks to the author s wonderful ear for dialect and eye for detail.T.R Pearson weaves a rich tale only it isn t simply one tale It s story spun off of story spun off of story in the best of family storytelling styles Each hilarious character and their story, only puts the storyteller various elder members of Louis Benfield s family in mind of another even outrageous character with all of their ...

    Unquestionably the funniest book I ve ever read The first time I read the book, my mother was in the same room with me and kept asking me why I was laughing so hard, but it s impossible to read a passage from this book aloud.Some people might find Pearson s style of writing hard to get used to unless they re from the South The book is written exactly as if ...

    T.R, Pearson s books do not really get this side of the pond After reading the very excellent Cry Me a River and A Short History of a Small Place I was expecting from this one.After plugging away and plugging away at it, by the middle you finally DO come to realise that it is a book with something to say but so stylised as to be one track only The e.e.cummings i had an uncle named sol...

    Clearly not for everyone and an effort to get through, even for me who loves it A funny, poignant, outrageous story about the stories we tell No story is not dependent on another story Any story worth its salt reminds us of another story Every story has some story that went before In this very southern novel our family story is part and parcel of who we a...

    It took me forever 70 pages at least to get into Pearson s writing style long paragraphs of one long sentence with minimal punctuation But the family stories, relationships, and tangential stories were humorous The last 30 pages were my favorite, and I m glad I stuck with it.

    Quirky isn t the half of how it is Very peculiar style, engaging sometimes, but long What s the story Where is it going Anywhere
