    This slender book, the last of twenty-nine written by Kathryn Tucker Windham over her long and productive life, will be an exquisitely bittersweet read for many fans of the late storyteller and author from Selma, Alabama. Windham died shortly before the publication of the volume, but only over the last eighteen months of her life did she seem constrained by her advancing years. In She, which Windham was putting the finishing touches on when she died at age 93 in June 2011, the author describes how she woke up early one day to find that she had an unwanted houseguest, an old woman who had suddenly moved into her home and was taking over her life. Windham referred to this interloper simply as “She”, and here the reader has been invited into the lively colloquy between the author whose spirit has not changed though her body has slowed and her alter ego, as they move together toward the earthly end.
