Carolina Writers at Home
This unique collection of true stories showcases the houses where notable Southern authors have forged their writing lives. Edited by Meg Reid, the homes in these 25 essays range from the classic bungalow and mid-century modern ranch house to wilder locales: A church, a trailer, and a sparsely-inhabited barrier island. From the simple pleasures of Cassandra King’s writing room to the humorous and sometimes scary intrusions of wildlife in George Singleton’s realm, this unique anthology invites the reader to see what makes people’s houses truly their own. Other contributors include Jill McCorkle, Nikky Finney, Allan Gurganus, Clyde Edgerton and Michael Parker. Photographer Rob McDonald’s black and white images capture the writers in their habitat, preserving their distinct personalities as well as the character of the place they inhabit. Published by Hub City Press. Hardcover, 224 pages, $34.95. Softcover, $24.95.
