Description

"A little over a year ago, I went to visit the home my parents brought me to after I was born, in Seneca, South Carolina. When I walked up to the house –– for the first time in many, many years –– I was flooded with memories of my childhood, and growing up in the other houses like this one as we moved around the South. The light making shadows on the floor in the late afternoon, the summer heat that just hangs on you, sitting on the front step waiting for my dad to come home, the sound of my mother cooking in the kitchen. The architecture of those homes was and is unremarkable to just about everyone who sees them, but to me, they're my life –– they're where I became who I am. I know there are countless stories like mine from people from all around America. I want to share those stories –– and what they say about America and Americans –– through this book." –– John Edwards
