A nice collection of stories from Southern authors. While a couple left me cold, the majority were very enjoyable. My personal faves were My Heart is a Snake Farm, The Pantyhose Man and Mr. Sender. I listened to the audio book and the collection was enhanced by some excellent readers, including Alabama's own Michael Emerson.
