Summary At first glance, these stories seem grounded in the everyday: they paint pictures of idyllic Southern landscapes with characters fulfilling their roles as students, boyfriends, sons and wives. But all is not what it seems. Tackling issues of masculinity, sexual identity, and place, Nick White deconstructs the core qualities of Southern fiction, exposing deeply flawed and fascinating characters on wildly compelling quests.
