    Not sure what I enjoyedthe beautiful, rich language or the thorough knowledge of the insider of Southern culture My two cents it would greatly help the reader if the book was prefaced by a long chapter on American South Perhaps it should be written by the outsider The author lived and breathed this culture for so long that he would sometimes use those little shortcuts to explain the local s, attitudes, beliefsOne might argue that a Southerner would understand it all with Not sure what I enjoyedthe beautiful, rich language or the thorough knowledge of the insider of Southern culture My two cents it would greatly help the reader if the book was prefaced by a long chapter on American South Perhaps it should be written by the outsider The author lived and breathed thi...

    So disappointing Darden Pyron s narrative is plodding, needlessly scholarly and full of obscure references that add nothing It took a long time to finish this book because I kept falling asleep after reading two or three pages Pyron did an amazing thing by taking a GWTW related subject and making it so dull that even I s...

    As a big Gone With the Wind fan, I had to read this bio of Margaret Mitchell It gave me a much greater understanding of GWTW It gets kind of tedious at times, but it s worth it if you want to learn all about Mitchell.
