Delta Jewel - A Memoir
by Bob Brawley
This is the story of a shy, sensitive young boy, his domineering mother, whom he idolizes, his inattentive, alcoholic father, his sisters, and of following his mother from state to state as she pursues her obsession of becoming a singing star. Bob takes a courageous look at his youth with love, rancor, and humor. And in his writing, he may sometimes wince, but he never turns away.
