Is there a particular kind of book – or author – that always grabs your attention

for me – that’s southern writers.  Most of them are actually from the south or are writing about it – but what seems most “southern” about these authors to me is their ability to tell a story.  So when I saw this listing posted by Simon and Schuster on “50 best southern novels ever written”, I was hooked.  As is always the case I could argue about some of the choices but there’s a lot of good reading here.
