Jimmy Carter

Description

A Remarkable Mother is President Carter's loving, admiring, wry homage to Miss Lillian Carter, who championed the underdog always, even when her son was president.

A registered nurse, pecan grower, university housemother, Peace Corps volunteer, public speaker, and renowned raconteur, Miss Lillian ignored the mores and prejudices of the racially segregated South of the Great Depression years. She was an avid supporter of the Brooklyn Dodgers (because she happened to attend the first major league baseball game in which Jackie Robinson, from Cairo, Georgia, played), was a favored guest on television talk shows (usually able to "steal the microphone" from hosts such as Johnny Carson and Walter Cronkite), and an important role model for the nation.
Jimmy Carter's mother emerges from this portrait as redoubtable, generous, and forward-looking. He ascribes to her the inspiration for his own life's work of commitment and faith.

Publishers Weekly Review

31 March 2008 – Former President Carter offers this personal memoir concerning his relationship with his mother, Miss Lillian, who is equally as engaging and thoroughly appealing as her son. Reading with passion, honesty and clarity, Carter relates his mother's tale in a matter-of-fact manner. His Southern dialect and rolling tone are music to the ears of listeners, who will find themselves being whisked away to another time and place. With tales of escapades on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and her own views on the sectarian divide in the South, Lillian Carter steps into the spotlight so often occupied by her son and never ceases to disappoint. An exceptional audio experience! A Simon & Schuster hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 18).
