Red(neck), White, and Blue
If you were to call Will Brantley or T. Edward Nickens a “redneck,” they’d likely take it as a compliment. After all, you don’t coauthor a new book titled The Total
Redneck Manual ($29; amazon.com) unless you’re proud of, and confident in, your status as one. But let’s be clear: This book isn’t page after page of Jeff Foxworthy– inspired punchlines. This book’s for people who love to hunt, fish, shoot guns, fry fish and game, and drive old trucks. In other words: This is a book for people who love good American fun. —C.K.
