Summary
"Drawing on storytelling traditions as old as southern literature itself, 'Grit Lit' is the first anthology devoted to contemporary writing about the Rough South. From literary legends to emerging voices, the acclaimed writers featured in this collection view their hardscrabble South without romanticism or false nostalgia, not through moonlight and magnolia but moonshine and Marlboros."--Publisher description.
