Shannon Ravenel, the editor of Algonquin Books in Chapel Hill, talks about the state of Southern literature. The Southern writer most frequently writes about nostalgia, the passage of time, guilt, and ordinary things. While Southern fiction is often criticized for not keeping up with the times, Algonquin Books has recently received national attention on behalf of some of its authors. The publishing house was started in attempt to give a voice to talented writers who were shut out by New York publishers.
