Vann Woodward, Allen Tate, Eudora Welty, Zora Neale Hurston, Caroline Gordon, Reynolds Price, Robert Penn Warren, Alice Walker, Andrew Lytle, Flannery O'Connor, William Styron, James Dickey, Truman Capote, James Agee, Lillian Hellman, Peter Taylor, Katherine Anne Porter, Thomas Wolfe, Carson McCullers, Tennessee Williams, and many more.

Review:

"Lovers of fine writing will find the hefty sampling of twentieth-century southern U.S. literature by black and white men and women to be irresistible... a dignified yet lively testament to the fact that the American South represents, among many other things, a particularly distinctive body of literature." --Booklist
