New Mississippi Writer: Jessamyn Ward, National Book Award nominee

--by Amber Lewis http://www.nola.com/books/index.ssf/2011/11/national_book_award_nominee_je.html National Book Award nominee Jesmyn Ward is just the latest Mississippi writer shining bright Similar...
Buffy J. Hamilton's insight:

"Ward suggests she had to move away from the South to begin to understand Faulkner and what he was doing. Do you have to live away from the South to gain perspective? To see how the South is characterized and represented from the outside? Do you have to look outside to appreciate what is happening in Southern culture?

Southern lit is treated as a separate niche, and Ward is surprised at national attention. What kind of attention is it? We are still separating the South as a region in a way that other regions aren’t."
