library Journal

in The South, Someone Is Called An Embroiderer If They Tend To Tell True Stories With More Than A Little Poetic License. In White's Earlier Collection (bailey White: An Interesting Life, Audio Reviews, Lj 2/15/93) It Was Hard To Tell Where The Truth Left Off And The Embroidery Began. Some Of The Stories In Sleeping At The Starlite Motel, However, Have Visible If Lovely Stitches. Still, White's Austenesque Observations Remain Clear-eyed And Dead On The Mark. As Before, Her Everyday Characters Are Extraordinarily Memorable. There's Nockerd Sockett, Whose Cheerful Triumph Over Earlier Tragedies Crumbles Under The Weight Of False Accusation. There's The Fruit-tree Man, Red The Rat Man, And Great-great Aunt Rose And Her Exquisite Shroud. This Gem Of A Collection, Ably Read By The Author, Is Sure To Have Wide Appeal And Should Absolutely Be In Every Library Collection.-reilly Reagan, Putnam Cty. Lib., Cookeville, Tenn.
