In this ninth volume of "New Stories from the South, " you'll find characters you wish you knew, along with others you'll be glad you don't: a boy who wears his mother's shoes as his father lies dying, a young mother dying of cancer who decides to do some living in the meantime, women talking trash as they peel crawfish, a man who videotapes a "Bonanza" rerun over his wife's sonogram, and a recent college grad calling home to tell Dad about her sixty-three-year-old groom-to-be who's about to make Dad a grandfather, and - well you get the idea. The year's best southern stories are as diverse as their writers, some of whom are well-known and widely published while others are brand-new and just getting started.
