"When we read the collection here we want still more."
-Eudora Welty

A pleasure jaunt through the irrepressibly funny world of a gifted raconteur

All who know Charlotte Capers treasure her wit and her charismatic storytelling.

Here a selection of her amusing narratives moves from conversation to the page as she takes the ordinary and makes it refreshing and fascinating.

Clever, sophisticated, and entertaining, she ranges over many subjects-dogs, tenants, travels, an operation, babies, a car wreck, and small-town life at its ordinary gait.

Those who read these witty essays written by a fabulous raconteur will feel included in a close and special circle.

Charlotte Capers, former director of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, lives in Jackson, Mississippi.
