From Library Journal

This collection of essays, reviews, speeches, and interviews details the interaction among a number of Southwestern women writers, including Katherine Anne Porter, Eudora Welty, Zora Neale Hurston, Flannery O'Connor, Anne Tyler, Alice Walker, and Josephine Humphreys. Occupation, gender, and region conspire to join these authors in kinship, and, like family members, they offer criticism, support, admiration, and understanding to one another. This anthology will be useful both in the college classroom and for the general reader. It is sure to enlighten, entertain, inspire, and delight.
