Farewell: A Memoir of a Texas Childhood by Horton Foote

For more than five decades, Horton Foote, the Chekhov of the small town, has chronicled the changes in American life -- both intimate and universal. His adaptation of Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird and his original screenplay Tender Mercies earned him Academy Awards. He received an Indie Award for Best Writer for The Trip to Bountiful and a Pulitzer Prize for The Young Man from Atlanta. In his plays and films, Foote has returned over and over again to Wharton, Texas, where he was born and where he lives, once again, in the house in which he grew up. Now for the first time, in Farewell, Foote turns to prose to tell his own story and the stories of the real people who have inspired his characters. His memoir is both a celebration of the immense importance of community and evidence that even a strong community cannot save a lost soul. Farewell is as deeply moving as the best of Footes writing for film and theater, and a gorgeous testimony to his own faith in the human spirit.
