THE STORIED SOUTH: VOICES OF WRITERS AND ARTISTS -- WILLIAM FERRIS. University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 2013. 288 pp. with 46 ills. and CD-ROM with interviews and DVD. 25 x 21 cm. LC 2013-10406 ISBN 9781469607542 In English.
Publisher's description: The Storied South features the voices -- by turn searching and honest, coy and scathing -- of twenty-six of the most luminous artists and thinkers in the American cultural firmament, from Eudora Welty, Pete Seeger, and Alice Walker to William Eggleston, Bobby Rush, and C. Vann Woodward. Masterfully drawn from one-on-one interviews conducted by renowned folklorist William Ferris over the past forty years, the book reveals how storytelling is viscerally tied to southern identity and how the work of these southern or southern-inspired creators has shaped the way Americans think and talk about the South. The Storied South offers a unique, intimate opportunity to sit at the table with these men and women and learn how they worked and how they perceived their art. The volume also features 45 of Ferris's striking photographic portraits of the speakers and a CD and a DVD of original audio and films of the interviews.
