Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Allan Gurgunas has blessedly assured an all consuming audience for this one because anyone that picks it up and begins reading will not be able to put it down.

The 2000 limited edition one is the one I read and am keeping for all time. An absolutely precious tale of a white man helping or being tricked into service by a loveable black lady. At first fearing to enter the part of town where the black population lived he quickly began to be there not only to collect insurance payments but to be entertained and company to the lady of the house.

Gurganus also illustreated the book beautifully which adds so much to it. It all reminded me so much of my childhood experiences of the people Southerners loved/loves but never treated very gracefully. A real jewel of a read that turns into magic in your hands.
