Rated of 5
Ava's Man was one of the most touching, yet entertaining books I have read in a long time. Among Rick Bragg's greatest talents is his ability to make the reader laugh and cry at the same time.
Highly recommended book
Rated of 5
The beauty of Bragg's writing is otherworldly. I read with tears in my eyes through much of the book at the sheer loveliness of his language. The characters are so real and so loveable that I found myself unable to read the last section because I knew "Charlie" was going to die, and I could not bear the thought. This tribute to a grandfather who died before the author's birth, is a must read for anyone who loves the English language, biographies, good stories or their families! I will re-read this book often, at least sections of it, to remind myself how our language CAN sound when it is used with skill and love. Penelope
