Like the parlor chorus of conversation at a Southern family reunion, the voices in the 'Stories from the Blue Moon Café II' anthology are loud, or they are soft. They are crazy, but not asked to be quiet: “Go ahead, Uncle Ralph, where was it they landed?” And no one laughs.

Overview

Like the parlor chorus of conversation at a Southern family reunion, the voices in the 'Stories from the Blue Moon Café II' anthology are loud, or they are soft. They are crazy, but not asked to be quiet: “Go ahead, Uncle Ralph, where was it they landed?” And no one laughs. Or they do, and somebody pulls a gun and everything goes quiet again. But not for long. Bookended by stories from Larry Brown and William Gay — two masters of storytelling from a tradition that’s rooted south of the Mason-Dixon — this collection runs the scale from humor to pathos and back again, picking up a poem here and there, an essay or two, and a concert of stories. Fannie Flagg and Jill Conner Browne and W. E. B. Griffin lend their bestseller styles, and eighteen-year-old Eric Kingrea proves we’re growing new authors down South who only used to be unheard of. In voices that are rich and distinct, the skills of these writers blend to lift up a harmony that’s foursquare and solid. Readers embraced the first volume of 'Stories from the Blue Moon Café' and it was praised by reviewers across the country. This second volume hits its own sonorous note, strong like the distant rumble of thunder that promises cooling rain and sweet relief. Good reading that tunes up your mind and echoes in your heart.
