Lucinda, Louisiana, and Lists
Writing in The Bitter Southerner, Wyatt Williams reads Lucinda Williams' memoir but doesn't get to
talk to her about it and instead contemplates the limitations of memory,
the relationships between parents and children, the complexities of the
American South in general and of Louisiana in particular, on the nature
of songs that are lists of resonant images or place names, and on
whatever it is that Lucinda Williams does for and about and because of
all of these things.
