Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe II: An Anthology of Southern Literatureby Sonny Brewer
Like the parlor chorus of conversation at a Southern family reunion, the voices in the Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe Volume II anthology are loud or they are soft. They are crazy, and not asked to be quiet. Bookended by stories from Larry Brown and William Gay -- two masters of storytelling from traditions rooted South of the Mason-Dixon line -- this collection runs the scale from humor to pathos and back again. In voices that are rich and distinct, the skills of these Southern writers blend to lift up a harmony that's foursquare and solid. Readers embraced the first volume of Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe and it was hailed 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.
