Homecoming: the southern family in short fiction
The short stories of Southern writers often examine the family, occasionally in startling and unsettling ways, and contemporary writers in particular struggle with the family's opposing needs. In voices comic, tragic, lyrical and wry, twelve of the region's finest--including Eudora Welty and Truman Capote--present their portraits of the Southern family.
