Let me start by saying I’m not a hunter, don’t own a gun, and don’t have much of a green thumb. That out of the way, a new magazine called “Garden & Gun” has really impressed us. Billed as “The Soul of the South,” this publication out of Charleston, SC is a real thing of beauty. Great photographs and interesting short stories about all things Southern. There is also great writing from the likes of Rick Bragg, Roy Blount, Jr., Marshall Chapman, and food critic John T. Edge.

New releases

29 May

Check out these new releases. Don’t think you can go wrong with either one.

What can you say about Al Green? He is simply the best. Al’s newest release is “Lay It Down” and trust me … he still does. Fewer of you have probably heard of Alabamian Rick Bragg, but he is one of my favorite living authors. Read his “All Over But the Shoutin” and “Ava’s Man” and then pick up the final piece of this down home trilogy entitled “The Prince of Frogtown.” All three works are funny, gut wrenchingly sad, and ultimately uplifting & unforgettable. Trust me … you will not be disappointed.
