    Award-winning author Lee Smith’s fiction has lived and breathed with the rhythms and people of the Appalachian South. Now she has written her own story in fifteen essays that are both a moving personal portrait and a testament to embracing one’s heritage. The Grundy of Lee Smith’s youth was a place of coal miners, tent revivals, mountain music, drive-in theaters, and her daddy’s dimestore. It was in that dimestore–listening to customers and inventing adventures for the store’s dolls–that she became a storyteller. Dimestore is a moving personal portrait and a testament to embracing one’s heritage.
