Not at all. I didn't even catch your first plug.
Actually I've been reading more Southern writers lately. I just read Neal Holland Duncan's Baby Soniat (recommended by blastandcast above). Was a little disappointed with that one actually. The last chapter was so much better than everything preceding it (in my humble opinion). It was a fun read though.
Another Southern author worth mentioning in this thread (Southern Trad?) is Walker Percy. I actually haven't read anything by him but Congresspark's mention of Peter Taylor sort of reminded me that I've been meaning to. I'll probably check The Moviegoer out from the library this afternoon.
Also, I read Cold Spring Harbor by Richard Yates a few days ago and would really, highly recommend it to anyone. It's a quick read too.
