From the Author of Southern By the Grace of God, comes this hilarious–and at times, reflective–little book about Southerners and their celebrated peculiarities. Who but a Southerner, for instance, would “die for a plate of fried okra” or keep watching Gone With the Wind “in hopes the South will eventually win?” Grissom pokes some good-natured fun at his fellow Southerners and at their eternal nemesis, the all-wise Yankee, who can always be counted on to tell Southerners they are wrong about everything. Author of seven other books, Grissom holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Oklahoma and has lived in Tennessee and Oklahoma.
