Being a woman of the south, I seek out good southern lit but am disappointed far too often.

Following a tired pattern, many of the books I find lean heavily on southern stereotypes rather than the hard truth of today's south.  Sadly, this includes some highly praised southern novels.  

After receiving an advance copy of Wiley Cash's When Ghosts Come Home I stayed up way past my normal bedtime to read straight through till reaching The End.

Wiley Cash hits every note just right. Relative to the large number of books I read, I rarely give a book 5 stars. This one deserves 10. 

Half way through this year, I have two literary heroes.  Wiley Cash and Shawn A. Cosby .
