Bill Cristenberry has been our neighbor and friend for 30 years. He is a taciturn, laconic, modest man who loves the Boston Red Sox, Alabama football, and Hale county, Alabama. In this book, Bill repeats stories of his family, his past, his art. Many I have heard, others were completely new to me. His work is based on memory and here they are along with enough of his haunting photographs to allow the reader to make the connections. If you enjoy his art you should really read this book.
