North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame inductee Lee Smith returns to QRB for the paperback release of her memoir, Dimestore: A Writer's Life. With wit, wisdom, and graceful prose, she conjures her early days in the small town of Grundy, Virginia. A place of coal miners, mountain music, and her daddy's dimestore, it was there, listening to customers and inventing life histories for the store's dolls―that she began to learn the craft of storytelling.
