The Prince of Frogtown

The Prince of Frogtown by Rick Bragg describes Bragg’s childhood in eastern Alabama and reflects on the life of his father. Bragg was motivated to write the book; he recently married and became a stepfather to a 12-year-old. Due to the strained relationship with his own father, the author is concerned about the challenge he faces in becoming a father for the first time. It’s a truly open account of life with a troubled, yet loving, father and the fears men face when becoming a father.
