    Behind Southern Manners

    Crews writes with an original voice about that part of Southern life that is just out of sight of most Americans - even Southerners. He writes of the real Southerner, the man behind the men. He writes of the outcasts, the socially marginalized, the impoverished, the underclass of the deep South. There is something of the best of Flannery O'Connor in his work. This book was my introduction to Harry Crews and was I ever glad to make his aquaintance? You bet! I am now in the process of reading through his body of work. This book, whatever else it does, will broaden your experience... And isn't that what we want from literature?
