Capote always wished he was from NY anyways. Harper Lee on the other hand seemed to wish she was a southern boy...;)

A Virginian, but not a true southern author IMHO. I do love some Poe though.

Well, geography be damned. He's so been incorporated into the "Southern Gothic Milieu" (how pretentious is that?). Hey, I'm from Michigan. So anyone South of Kentucky is a "Southerner".

Faulkner is my favorite author, althought I've never read The Hamlet.


Absolom, Absolom! is his greatest work IMHO.:2

I acquired a volume with the whole trilogy in it-just the way Faulkner wanted it. You gotta love them Snopes:tu

I've never read a Faulkner book but I did a 12 page report on him once. Ha.

Currently reading Dan Simmons' Children of the Night.

Most recently, the previous three posts before posting this. :) Been revisiting Isaac Asimov lately. Reading Nemisis right now.
