About the Author
This book came about because of genuine characters in a small southern town. Their stories, mostly true, highlight aspects of Southern personalities. Most regional short stories highlight qualities of northerners, but this book describes the humor and feelings of residents of a small southern town. The model is of Garrison Keillor's many novels about Lake Wobegon.
