From the redneck to the gothic, Southern fiction covers the muddy waterfront of genres and styles. The American South is barefoot and pregnant with possibilities for lies, fables, tall-tales, and other fabrications generally falling under the category of fiction. Writing as deep and wide as the fecund Delta cotton fields has produced a body of literature giving us such classics as Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind, Carson McCullers’ The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and Edward P. Jones’ The Known World.
