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.
