Summary :

"It is still a comfort to come back from traveling," writes Bailey White, "with my random memories like a display in some Victorian museum of miscellany, to a home full of people whose lives I know so well I can tell the story of every missing finger and call every old lady's cat by name." In Sleeping at the Starlite Motel she explores how places affect our lives, from her humid hometown in Georgia to a one-room school in Vermont.
