For Chapter 16, I recently reviewed Appalachia Now, which has gathered up a fascinating sampling of short stories from today’s Appalachia. When I read a book like this, becoming a southern writer seems to have been a pretty good life choice. The anthology includes writers like Charles Dodd White (co-editor), Chris Offutt, Darnell Arnoult, Mark Powell, Jacinda Townsend, David Joy, and Mesha Maren. You can read the review now at Chapter 16.
Thanks for the review, Emily. Excellently written.
