Sinopsis:

This paperback edition of the acclaimed 1987 hardcover is a collection of essays exploring a variety of subjects including other writers, music, cooking, religion, and many more.

From Publishers Weekly:

Novelist Price, who is sometimes called a regional writer, notes that Twain, Faulkner, Hardy and Turgenev also might fit this rubric. He argues here that great novelists combine rural and urban concerns into one overarching perspective, then he applies this yardstick to his fellow Southern writers as well as to Jewish-American fiction. This mixed bag of essays from the past 35 years offers controversial viewpoints. For example, Price suggests that Hemingway's essential themeunbeknownst to himself and his readerswas saintliness, the quest for virtue instead of manly strength. Adopting Confederate-style oratory, Price transforms a journalistic piece on Jimmy Carter into a meditation on the South's role in shaping American politics and culture. He ponders whether sweeping industrialization and mass media will silence the traditions of Southern fiction. Conversational essays interweave childhood reminiscences, relentless scrutiny of his own work and appreciations of Milton, James, Welty, Graham Greene and Tennessee Williams.
