Deep South

For those believe the literature of the American South is worthy of deep discussion, and also for any who are interested in spending some time with those who do, welcome.

Attempts to define or delimit the territory covered by "the deep south" are undertaken in vain. There are as many Souths in letters as there are readers and writers. Welcome to all.

(For the purposes of helping folks find this little cranny of LT, I will list some southern things: alabama, florida, georgia, mississippi, north carolina, south carolina, tennessee, kudzu, sweet tea, football, african american, spanish moss, bourbon, civil war, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Flannery O'connor, Harper Lee, Walker Percy - and newer writers like Fannie Flagg, Rick Moody, Anne Rivers Siddons, Rick Bragg, Mark Childress, Jill McCorkle, Cormac McCarthy.....)
