WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
What is it about the South that has inspired so much of America's greatest literature, and why do we think of our greatest authors not just as writers, but as Southern writers? In SOUTH TOWARD HOME: TRAVELS IN SOUTHERN LITERATURE, author Margaret Eby―herself a Southerner―travels through the South in search of answers to these questions, visiting the hometowns and stomping grounds of some of our most beloved authors. From Mississippi (William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Richard Wright) to Alabama (Harper Lee, Truman Capote) to Georgia (Flannery O'Connor, Harry Crews) and beyond, Eby looks deeply at the places that these authors lived in and wrote about. South Toward Home reveals how these authors took the people and places they knew best and transmuted them into lasting literature, and is a rich and evocative tribute to them and to the literary South as a whole.

“A sweetly personal yet embracingly informative book…. Eby entices us to enjoy their work either for the first time or once again.”
--BOOKLIST, Starred review
