Zorro (zorrom) | 177 comments All the King’s Men I missed reading this with you and am now reading for my Pulitzer list. I am loving these loooong sentences like sitting out on the porch in the evening, listening to Uncle tell a story of his youth.

Zorro (zorrom) | 177 comments One of my favorite, favorite Pulitzers - is also written by a Florida author and some of the stories are set in Louisiana - stories of Vietnamese Americans who came to the US after the Vietnam War.Robert Olen ButlerA Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

I wonder if you count this as a Southern book? Louisiana is their home.
