schema:description"To Kaye Gibbons's dusty North Carolina countryside; the voices are black and white, male and female, old and young, privileged and poor. The journey away and back again provides the narrative framework for many of the stories. Picking up a theme that has an honorable association in the state, Gingher says, "You can go home again, but it's a rough road back." As Gingher readily admits, it is probably impossible to talk about something called "North Carolina writing," just."@en
