Proving that the waters of Southern talent run deep and that traditions are meant to be both honored and stood on their ear, the third volume of Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe presents the most talented practitioners of Southern writing.
Readers need not ever have set foot south of the Mason-Dixon line to appreciate the bold, the brash, the horrifying, and the humorous short stories, essays, poems, and even songs from the South’s preeminent authors and its strongest new voices, gathered together for a feast in Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe III.
Considered one of the South’s finest storytellers, Sonny Brewer is the author of the novels The Poet of Tolstoy Park, A Sound Like Thunder and Cormac, and editor of the Blue Moon Café anthology series. He founded Over the Transom Bookstore and the Fairhope Center for the Writing Arts. He lives in Alabama.
“When the first edition came out in 2002, I wrote that it was ‘the greatest collection of Southern writers since Willie Morris' funeral,’ and each edition has only improved. This third volume sets a new standard.”
