Burl

by Morrison Heady

The author of this little book is both blind and deaf! For many years he has been absolutely blind. He has utterly lost the sense of hearing also; and whilst he speaks with singular clearness, and with some modulation of voice, he can receive no communication from his fellow-creatures except through an alphabet which he carries upon his hand! Every word must be spelled letter by letter.Thus deprived of two of his senses, it is a marvel that he is able to write at all. That he has written a book of more than ordinary interest I am sure the reader will decide when he has read it. There are passages of true poetry scattered here and there, and some descriptive scenes that will not suffer by comparison with those of the best of living authors.

Author of the Day

Jackie Weger
Jackie Weger did a lot of interesting things in her life, such as starting university at 62 and traveling the word, living in tiny jungle villages. As she has found too many romance books are serious with poor, orphaned heroines, her novels are filled with humor and buzzing with family life. As our Author of the Day, Weger chats about how the Alabama Raised cottages inspired her latest book, Persimmon Road, reveals why she included a Civil War era ghost in the story and much more.
