Summary

Before he won stunning acclaim as one of today's most gifted southern writers, Larry Brown was a firefighter with the Oxford, Mississippi, Fire Department. On Fire, his powerful and unflinching account of this experience, catapults listeners into the daily trauma all firefighters face, from the blistering heat of burning homes to the crunch of broken glass at crash scenes. As a gritty autobiography of a firefighter and as a lyrical exploration of one man's burning desire to write, this audiobook makes an unforgettable listening experience.
