Seller Inventory ING Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Family Bible by Melissa J. Family Bible by Melissa J. You took off most of your clothes to do them and you only did them with people who were the same color as you. As your daddy got richer, you got to do them in fancier places. Readers will find elements of Southern Gothic and familiar vernacular characters, but Delbridge endows each with her startling and original interpretation. In this disarmingly unguarded and unapologetic memoir, she shows us what really happened in the "stew of religion and sex" that was s Tuscaloosa.
Whether telling of her father's circumspect "hunting trips," her mother's sudden, tempestuous moves across town in the middle of the night, or coming to terms with her own sexuality on the banks of the river, Delbridge is the real star of this entertaining memoir.
Crackling with wit, frighteningly smart, both drop-dead funny and wrenchingly sad, Family Bible is a stunning personal history. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages.

FAMILY BIBLE, written by my dear friend Melissa Delbridge, was savored only at night before drifting off to sleep, because her words were the gateway to the most delicious dreams that brought me back to my own coming-of-age days in Alabama. The only improvement I can imagine is an audio book version. No actor, please, only the writer's sultry voice. A female Salinger, Faulkner, and Welty but more than the sum of those!
Highly highly recommended. Apr 26, Linda rated it did not like it Recommends it for: no one. Shelves: memoir. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Having lived in Tuscaloosa, I was taken in by the reviews of Family Bible and had high expectations of a good read. I was very disappointed. Trash your Mom, idolize your philandering Dad, share your experimentation with marijuana and lesbian relationships in your teens, and only at the end give me a glimpse of your humanity as you work with patients at Bryce, left me wishing I had not wasted my Amazon.
Perhaps I am too "evangelical" to comprehend the "intellectual" magnetism this book has for the liberal, tolerant reviewers of today.

If I sound judgmental and grouchy, please pardon me. I am annoyed with myself for wasting time on this book when there are so many wonderful, edifying, and interesting books out there--beginning with God's Word. Jul 15, Jane rated it it was amazing. Delbridge has a bright, witty conversational style so vibrant I felt she was in the room talking to me I look forward to more from this strong Southern woman! May 11, Kendall rated it really liked it. Delbridge weaves a strong narrative through this memoir, reflecting on growing up in the South during the era of integration.
She paints a vivid picture of the challenges she faced and creates a compelling case for tolerance. Jul 14, Beth rated it really liked it Shelves: coming-of-age , biographymemoir. This is a coming-of-age-in-the-South memoir without the cloying sentimentality that sometimes comes with the genre. Aug 31, Kim Church rated it it was amazing.
