The Marrow of Tradition

by Charles W. Chesnutt

This book starts out and you think that it is going to be another nostalgic handling of the post-War south. The use of dialect can make one think of Margaret Mitchell, and "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' no babies. . . . .".

But, as you get into the book, it is a very intelligent handling of the subject, with more subtleties and nuances than the other "classic" treatments of the subject. It is well written, well executed and I recommend it to everyone.

Author of the Day

RD Vincent
RD Vincent likes to take readers to a special place to call your own, a place where time stands still, a fabled town called Donbridge. Vincent's Donbridge series is a collection of stories and folk tales, some of which he heard from his own grandmother. As our author of the day, Vincent talks about the latest bundle from this series, tells us more about the inspiration behind the stories and reveals why he also included recipes in the books.
