If you re interested in Southern fiction this is a very good overview with some of the South s most acclaimed authors It introduced me to a couple I was not familiar with Very enjoyable.
Growing up in the south, though not a church goer, still fear of hell, ect and this book explains why we are like that interviews and pieces from southern others that i have never reads put a little water on the fire of fire and brimstone to know that others feel this
Some of the stories are well crafted, some deep, some confusing, all pretty sad and many overwrought Well, it is Southern fiction Which I don t generally enjoy However, the interviews with the authors are very interesting.
This book is takes an interesting look into the religious thoughts of some of the most popular American Southern writers of our day through interviews and short samples of their fiction So much fun I only wish Flannery O Connor had been alive for an interview when Dr Ketchin did this book.
Love this book It s so insightful into the landscape of southern fiction Highly recommended if you like southern fiction and want a look into the mythic side of things.
There are so many parts in this book that ring true It s almost therapeutic to read it.
I must qualify this some, I haven t read all of the book BUT it s a great anthology that shows how various southern authors have been affected by their belief or lack thereof in a Higher Power
I love the title of this book It was required for a Southern Lit class but I enjoyed every minute of it.
