Product Overview

Alabama Stories is a collection of short works lifted from the life of native son William Vernon ?Billy? Johnson. Haunting, harrowing and gloriously-moving, these stories represent an intense examination of Billy?s childhood and young adult years in the Cotton State. Meet the colorful characters Billy knew during his Alabama years. There was Boone, the tight-lipped, physically and emotionally crippled farmer who had a psychotic love for his invalid wife. You will never forget Annie, the lonely, tragic former actress who desperately wanted a child. Meet Bobby Worthington, the high school football star who dreamed of playing for Paul ?Bear? Bryant. There was Virgil, the wildly successful Baptist evangelist who could never quite quench his thirst for black girls. Meet Charley, Billy?s angel unaware?. These are only a few of the strangely-wonderful characters who will step into your life when you read this book. Each and every one of these stories brings its own special flavor of Alabama to life and places it in direct context with the universal human experience.
