Will Baggett, TV weatherman, is probably the biggest celebrity in Raleigh, North Carolina, and he sure does like that "Yo, Will, what's the weather?" people call out, echoing his station's promotion campaign. With a nice house, a son in medical school, and a wife who's become one of the top brokers stoking the heedless real estate rush in north Raleigh, Will has the perfect life. But overnight a nasty conglomerate buys his station and throws him out, he's arrested for running a red light, he badly injures his knee, and he begins to see both that his marriage is in danger of crumbling, and that his son doesn't like him much. Then the past he thought he didn't have comes calling, in the person of his cousin Wingfoot Baggett, who collects a bewildered Will for some R&R back home, on the banks of the Cape Fear River. How Will comes to terms with his history, sorts out his legal dilemmas, reinvents himself, gets to know his son, and maybe, just maybe, reconciles with his wife, is the subject of BobInman's graceful, comic, and poignant novel. In a larger sense, this is also a novel about how the New South, with its booming economy and newly minted cities, is stamping out the Old South, losing in the process a sense of tradition and identity.… (mer)

Excerpts from my original GR review (Apr 2009):
- This is both a humorous and touching story. Reminded me a good bit of Anne Tyler.
- Will Baggett is a downsized Raleigh weatherman, whose exceptional bad luck in simply trying to pick up his severance check leads to a total reassessment of his life. Will falls in with some offbeat relatives, and begins to slowly come to terms with a tragic childhood loss. At peace with the end to a semi-celebrity life, Will starts a bare-bones business, recruiting his son to help.
- An entertaining, well-written story, characters I cared about, and one that guys will enjoy! ( )

Well-written story of Will Baggett, a middle-aged weatherman in Raleigh, SC, who loses everything and then learns what is important. Sounds cliched but really isn't. Author shows us Will's past and how he came to be what he is today. Honest look at a good man who makes some poor choices but then fights to make things right. ( )
