Product Details


“Eye-popping… Eclectic… Without even trying, Bragg explains why it is humans came to believe in miracles… The larger slices of southern life are the most welcome (the reader often is still hungry when the tidbits end)”
USA Today 3.5 out of 4 stars

“Bragg’s unfeigned writing, knowing truisms and funny advice holds strong throughout this stress-allaying book.”
–The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 

“Bragg’s secret sauce is his combination of crisp description, never-ending humor (occasionally pathos) and insight into his brain. He takes the things we think of as common and stands them on their heads. If ever we need a little funny, it is now. And this is Bragg’s present to you.”
–The Florida Times-Union

“Reads as if designed for our current short-attention-span state, many of the pieces just a couple of pages long, each of them offering a dose of humor or nostalgia or adventure or, quite often, descriptions of food that make you feel you can’t live another minute without a plate of fried chicken.”
–Tampa Bay Times

Where I Come From is vintage Bragg: comforting, thought-provoking and as heartfelt as it gets.”

“A generous helping of folksy wit and charm… There are laugh-out-loud moments throughout.”
–Publishers Weekly

“Poignant… The columns are clever, unassuming, and, most notably, told in a distinctive voice. They do what good columns do: sometimes tug at your heart, sometimes make you laugh to yourself, sometimes both. You read one and then go on with your day with a better sense of what it’s like to be from somewhere.”
–Kirkus Reviews
