Something About Me and My Book:
Gar Fish & Long Gravy: Memoirs of Southern Sensibility
by Alexander Devereux

About the Author, Alexander Devereux

Alexander Devereux overcame epilepsy at birth, dyslexia, and poverty to graduate from college and become a highly successful professional. An ordained minister, he works in the administrative field of higher education. Devereux is at work on his second book, a follow-up to Gar Fish and Long Gravy. He lives in Atlanta.

Growing up poor in the small town of Vicksburg, Miss., Alexander Devereux didn't have much. But there was no lack of remarkable personalities, each of whom left an indelible imprint on his life. Gar Fish & Long Gravy collects the stories, insight, tragedies, and uproarious wit of an unforgettable cast of characters. Meet Granmama Lia', whose hard-won wisdom on life, love--and mistresses--is dispensed to in her kitchen to her beloved grandson, sometimes over Johnny Walker Black. There's Ms. Peaches, who raises chickens in her ramshackle hut yet might be one of the richest people in town. Big Daddy is an imposing hulk, but his massive frame hides a vulnerable past and humiliating secret. Ms. Annie Laurie is a fabulously wealthy white woman who never had children of her own. But her love rains down on young Alexander. And that's just for starters.

Based on real-life experiences, Gar Fish & Long Gravy is about the mistakes we make, the loves we share, and the stories we tell each other that make us who we are. And it is the touching story of a boy who ultimately breaks free of the poverty and abuse of his extended family, yet never forgets the important lessons he learned along the way. As Grandmama said, "If sense were common, everybody would have it."

Dear Alexander, thank you for the lovely card. It means a lot to me since my hubby abruptly ended our marriage a few days ago for no good reason he could give, except that he had to "find himself" (all over again, I might. LOL. This is the 3rd time he's done it). Anyway, sorry, I don't mean to dampen the spirits. LOL. But  thank you from the bottom of my heart--how nice to get a Valentine's day card from you. In Australia it's now early morning of the 15th of Feb, so thank God Valentine's day is over for me. I was a bit sad last night with all that's been happening.


God Bless! Sylvia

Thanks for the friend request, AD. Nice profile! All the best, and continued success with your creative endeavors. A steady diet of fish has done me well. I'm sure yours taste as good as it looks. Feel free to visit me at my website - The 'GOoD' Life!


Be well and prosperous,
