Put those big books down. These short stories represent some of the best ever written about the South and offer the chance for escape without the commitment of an entire novel.
Questioning Alice Walker as a mother, Wiley Cash up for an award, Faulkner and Hemingway memorabilia up for auction and John Berendt pops up in New Orleans in Literary News. A culinary library fundraiser and summer booksignings in Literary Events. And new fiction from Alabama in Southern Voice.
