Going South

Elizabeth Spencer lists her favorite works of Southern fiction.

It is impossible to read the list without thinking of books that might be added. For example, I'd suggest:

Intruder in the Dust by William Faulkner
The Year of Jubilo by Howard Bahr
Provinces of Night by William Gay
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

And let us not forget Willy DeVille's 5 minutes of pure venomous brilliance - "Southern Politician"

Also to be remembered, A.J. Liebling's "The Earl of Louisiana."
