Excellent anthology of current Southern writers

As a graduate of a fiction writing program, I've read lots of anthologies. This one really stands out. The authors range from those I recognized, such as Alice Walker and Ha Jin, to some whom I've never had the pleasure to read--until now. As the subtitle indicates, the writers all have one thing in common. They have all lived in Georgia. Some, like Ha Jin, a Chinese expatriate, have styles and stories that are not tied to Southern culture. Other, like Janice Daughtarty, grew up in Georgia and their stories have an amazing southern tone. Like any good anthology, many of the stories contained here resonate. There are many characters and places contained in these stores that I continue to think about many days after I've finished reading them. If you're looking for a sampling of excellent short fiction, buy this book.
