Author Ann Patchett calls it "A beautiful & deeply compassionate examination of life." The book is "We Were Brothers" by National Book Award-winning illustrator Barry Moser, & new hardcover read is up for grabs this afternoon (Monday) at 4:35 on my Puffman Musical Trivia contest. "We Were Brothers" is a poignant look at a 20th century Southern childhood, captured in all its complexities both through words infused with a sly humor & drawings that convey their subjects' souls. Ultimately, it's a story of reconciliation, as well as a moving document of an inherited, inhabited world. Check out "We Were Brothers" from Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill at, & then listen to WIN on the Puffman Show this afternoon. My "musical trivia" question this afternoon is all about one of our all time favorite pop stars who's celebrating his 75th birthday today! The man was a literal "Pop hit factory!" See you this afternoon at 4:35 for some musical trivia stuff with Puff.
