Publisher's Summary

Continuing a two-decade tradition of excellence in literature, New Stories from the South presents the region's 20 best stories from 1996 to 2005, as selected by Anne Tyler. With such authors as Lee Smith, Judy Troy, William Gay, Stephen Coyne, Max Steele, Jill McCorkle, and Chris Offutt, Best of the South elegantly portrays an old man's struggle with Alzheimer's, a death row inmate's confusion over his own guilt, a young girl seeking comfort in a motel room with a trucker, and many more memorable, breathtaking stories.

Best of the South

This collection is amazing. Of course, I would expect nothing less from Shannon Ravenel, whose editorial expertise remains unsurpassed. Readers will not be disappointed. Bravo!
