Summary
"Shy, skinny Beauregard Forrest is a cub reporter at the the Standard Dispatch in Birmingham, Alabama. Mostly assigned to write obituaries, metro Briefs (kitchen fires and Kiwanis club meetings), and the Pet of the Week description for the local Humane Society, Beauregard has never had his stories make it beyond Section b, page 4 of the paper-hence his nickname, B-Four. Butt of the newsroom jokes, B-Four longs for a bigger story, a scoop that will make his name-or at least change his nickname. His father, a bank president and leading Civil War reenactor, is the very image of General Robert E. Lee: his brother Jackson, a former football star for Alabama and Bear Bryant, throws parties for a living and dates someone called "The Morsel." How B-Four escapes their shadows, pursues his dreamed-of scoop through various misadventures, finds comfort in barbecue and a kindred spirit in the form of Lorena, is a sweetly funny, deliciously Southern novel by one of the freshest comic voices in recent year."--Jacket
