Abstract:

From Beaufort to Boone and a dozen places in between, Carolina Writers at Home is a rich collection of true stories showcasing the houses where some of the most notable contemporary Southern authors--including Jill McCorkle, Nikky Finney, Allan Gurganus, Clyde Edgerton, and Michael Parker have forged their writing lives. The homes in these 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. Alongside the essays, Rob McDonald's evocative photographs capture the writers in their habitat, preserving their distinct personalities as well as the particular character of the house and place they inhabit. From the simple pleasures of Cassandra King's writing room, to the hilarious and sometimes terrifying intrusions of curious wildlife in George Singleton's realm, this unique anthology invites the reader to step inside some of the South's best loved writers' private worlds and see whant makes their houses truly their own. It shows how collections of objects can transform a simple house into Daniel Wallace's ark or Josephine Humphreys' museum, creating a sheltering place for a creative mind at work. [This book] pays homage to those who have taken inspiration form the beauty and singularity of the Carolina landscape and turned it into the written word. -- Front jacket flap.
