Thirty of today’s finest Southern writers serve up an intoxicating blend of stories, essays, and poetry. From the Civil War to the Cold War, country music to the blues, a mother and daughter to a boy and his dog, this is the South in all its sorrow-and all its splendor. “Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe” is a delightful mixture of Southern spice: the good, the bad, the heart-breaking, and the hilarious.
