9781905378319: Sweet Home: Stories of Alabama

This collection of short stories, written over a fifty year duration, offer a glimpse of how the Southern States of America have changed in the last 130 years. The cultural and social adjustments in these states, and particularly Alabama, are admirably and enjoyably reflected within these eclectic stories. Ranging from tales of post-civil war strifes and strains, to intensely personal reflections and stories about the racial tensions in the deep south, these narratives encompass observation, tragedy and a certain charm, as well as touching a personal chord and resonating the atmosphere of a unique time and place.
