Quite the variety of Southern writers & works, short stories, a couple of plays,
a passel of poems, a few interviews and essays. A good read, not necessarily
in order!

I read as much of this over a late 1980s Summer as I could dip into...
I remember Wolfe's story Chickamauga made an impression on me.
I intend to read these again!
