Clyde Edgerton

Best-selling author Clyde Edgerton blends a comfy Southern setting and quirky characters into an unforgettable journey through a spirited senior citizen’s world. Filled with the details of everyday life, this novel evokes the homespun wisdom and offbeat humor that have become Edgerton’s trademark. Meet Mattie Rigsby, 78, who keeps a clean house and bakes the best pound cake in Listre, North Carolina. Her children grown, she lives a comfortable and independent life. Her orderly days are about to be disrupted, however, by a stray. Unkempt and unloved, teenaged and delinquent, Wesley Benfield just might need a piece of her apple pie and a verse or two of Walking Across Egypt, her favorite hymn. As Mattie and Wesley come together, she will fill your heart with appreciation for a generation who still remembers that life is a lot better when it’s filled with good food and good manners. The sequel, Killer Diller , is also available from Recorded Books. Narrator Norman Dietz’s performance adds just the right flavor to Wesley, Mattie, and her baffled relatives.
