Red Dirt Review is dedicated to bringing you the best in poetry, fiction and memoirs from the American South. Funny, poignant and thought-provoking, this collection of short stories and poetry deserves a place of pride on the back of the toilet, because that's where real rednecks get all their reading done! If it drinks, drawls, bootlegs and raises hell, it's in here.

From Faulkner and Conroy to Cash and Haggard, everybody knows the best writers in the US come from the South. This collection of Southerners and southerners-at-heart shows some of the joys, laughter, loves and losses that comes from a life in the South.

From the Foreword -

Sunset Song
By John G. Hartness
inspired by David Childers’ The Prettiest Thing

She sat on the hood of her big brother’s truck
drinking warm Miller Lite and laughing
while he strummed that beat up Martin guitar
his daddy left behind.
She leaned back on the windshield;
he sang off-key Dylan songs,
scuffed cowboy boots tapping time on the dents
as her beer and the daylight blazed out in crimson-purple glory.
He looked up at her,
a backlit angel with a sunset halo
and cutoff shorts
and knew this
was the sweetest thing he’d ever see.
