THE Prince of Frogtown
By Rick Bragg / Knopf
"Rick Bragg's 'The Prince of Frogtown' is billed as the end of a trilogy.... The first, 'All Over But the Shoutin,' ' ... a tribute to his long-suffering mother ... walked that fine line between funny and sad. The second, 'Ava's Man,' also excellent, was about a grandfather he never knew. The third ... about his father, a figure he had pretty much dismissed as a mean drunk ... is powerful, darker than the others, but it has a sweetness.... – DIANE HARTMAN, The Denver Post
