To get at the heart of being Southern, one should turn to "Crackers". Roy Blount, Jr., puts readers in touch with possums, heterosexist dancing, men named Junior, a two-headed four-armed three-legged gospel singing man, and their feelings about the Carter administration. "Blount is Andy Rooney with a Georgia accent, only funnier".--"Washington Post Book World".
