Show Summary Details


Continuing to evolve and articulate itself in spite of national forces that threaten to misinterpret or, worse, ignore it, southern writing carries on much as it has, fueled by the small, dedicated regional presses and periodicals that provide its largely regional readership. Having done more than his share over the past half-century to document and critique the South’s ambivalent literary identity in this national context, George Garrett makes his own forecast of southern literary endurance all the more possible and likely.
