Review

Easily accessible . . . and certainly revelatory.--Louisiana History



[An] illuminating and affectionate memoir. . . . A pleasure to read . . . recommend[ed] to anyone who loves Percy's writings.--Commonwealth



These conversations not only shed light on a great American author, but also plunge readers into the rhythms of folksy Southern storytelling. Percy fans will relish this small jewel of a book.--Publishers Weekly



The focus in these thirteen flavoursome conversations is on Percy as a friend and fellow citizen. . . . This is an unpretentiously excellent collection of interviews, valuable for its insights not only into Percy but into recent life in the Deep South.--Times Literary Supplement



Harwell's [book] is about as folksy and down-home as it gets when delving into the life of a writer as complex as Percy--Pilot



The thirteen interviews here . . . will endear you to the man and introduce you to his many wonderful books.--Acadiana LifeStyle

From the Inside Flap

In the spirit of traditional southern storytelling, this biography of Walker Percy (1916-1990) takes its shape from candid interviews with his family, close friends, and acquaintances. In thirteen interviews, we get to know Percy through his lifelong friend Shelby Foote, Percy's brothers LeRoy and Phin, his former priest, his housekeeper, and former teachers, among others--all in their own words. Over the course of the interviews, readers learn intimate details of Percy's writing process; his interaction with community members of different ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds; and his commitment to civil rights issues.
