Mama Makes Up Her Mind: And Other Dangers of Southern Living

Bailey White, Author, B. White, Author Addison Wesley Longman $17.9 (240p) ISBN 978-0-201-63295-8
White is known to fans of National Public Radio's All Things Considered for her endearing true stories about rural South Georgia where she lives and teaches the first grade. Her first book, which brings together some 50 of these short pieces, rich in humor and folksy charm, should delight her listeners, as well as readers new to her storytelling. Many of the selections deal with White's mother, who has never seen a movie as good as Midnight Cowboy , and other relatives and friends with similar eccentric wrinkles in their personalities. Other pieces are culled from the events of White's everyday life--gardening, her school's annual Christmas Party. First serial to Boston Globe Sunday Magazine and Miami Herald Sunday Magazine. (Apr.)
