What is a Southern writer?

(HJN Landscape, Oil on rawhide)

“People can hardly help loving the hands that rocked their cradles or the landscapes that shaped their souls, but I doubt there’s a single writer in the South for whom life here isn’t a source of deep ambivalence.”

(Margaret Renkl, “What Is a Southern Writer, Anyway?”, NYTimes)

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
