Read full description of the books:
Will Baggett, TV weatherman, is Raleigh, North Carolina’s biggest celebrity. With adoring fans, a nice house, a son in medical school, and a beautiful wife who is one of the town’s top real-estate brokers, Will’s life is pretty much the way he wants it. But his well-ordered world comes crashing down when a heartless conglomerate buys the TV station and decides that Will is a relic of the past. Trying to get his job back, he gets himself arrested and injures both his knee and his pride. That’s when Will starts to realize that more than his career is in jeopardy: his marriage is coming apart and his son doesn’t like him very much. Just when he thinks he’s hit bottom, the past he thought he had escaped comes calling, and there are some long-neglected accounts to be settled. How Will comes to term with his history, resolves his trouble with the law, gets to know his son – and himself – and tries to recapture the magic of his marriage is the subject of Robert Inman’s graceful, poignant, and comic novel. It is also a story about how the New South, with its booming economy and sprawling cities, is stamping out the Old South and in the process losing a sense of tradition and identity.
