For more than a decade, Bailey White has delivered a story each Thanksgiving to National Public Radio'sAll Things Consideredlisteners. Long awaited by her many fans,Nothing with Stringsis the entire collection of these Thanksgiving stories, published together for the first time.With wit and charm, Bailey White writes about an almost-gone little town where a spoon player is a guardian angel, an old woman fears that John James Audubon is living in her attic, and a homely governess wins a baby bull in a raffle and loses her heart. It's the kind of place where Heavenly Blue morning glories grow in through the windows of old houses and funeral food is shared on a Greyhound bus on a fall afternoon. You may not have ever been there, but you will feel right at home in these pages. Bailey White's beautifully written stories, teetering on the edge of the unreal, are sure to bring back memories you don't really have.
