Former President Carter offers this personal memoir concerning his relationship with his mother, Miss Lillian, who is equally as engaging and thoroughly appealing as her son. Reading with passion, honesty and clarity, Carter relates his mother's tale in a matter-of-fact manner. His Southern dialect and rolling tone are music to the ears of listeners, who will find themselves being whisked away to another time and place. With tales of escapades on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and her own views on the sectarian divide in the South, Lillian Carter steps into the spotlight so often occupied by her son and never ceases to disappoint. An exceptional audio experience! A Simon & Schuster hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 18). (May)
