  2. Great Book This is a really great book, and the stories in this book do a lovely job of showing what it is to grow up Southern – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Going forward I will seek other works by these authors whose words paint unforhgettable pictures, and whose characters stay with you like old friends.
