Fiction. Gay/Lesbian Studies. New to SPD. REBEL YELL continues the tradition of Southern literature with the work of contemporary gay men. Includes work by such contemporary Southern gay authors as Robin Lippincott, Jameson Currier, Walter Holland, John Trumbo, Andrew Beirele, George Singer, Jeff Mann, and editor Jay Quinn, whose own story, 465 Acres, examines one man's rebellion against the long-held expectations of farm and family. The rotting plantations of Faulkner and Williams have long been bulldozed to accommodate the spread of tract housing and shopping malls, but the tales of the South, now told by a current generation, still spring from the hearts, groins, and minds of its sons. REBEL YELL is a singular collection of those stories, told in the soft accents of the gay men who know both the horror and tenderness that is their heritage.
