H. Brandt Ayers, Brandy to his friends, has been publisher of the family-owned “Anniston Star” since returning home from Washington D.C. and taking over from his father, Col. Harry Ayers, in 1963. Now 78 years old, Ayers has published his memoirs.
“In Love with Defeat” runs along two parallel tracks.
First, it is an autobiography, a richly anecdotal look at Alabama’s last half century.
