"Naw, y'all is in-between people... Part southern and part Yankee. And the part that's Yankee is good Yankee."
I just love that line.
From Mama, in Teresa Nicholas's amazing upcoming memoir of growing up in Yazoo City: BURYIN' DADDY: Putting My Lebanese, Catholic, Southern Baptist Childhood to Rest (University Press of Mississippi, March, 2011)
The book's not out until March, but the publisher sent me a review copy for Delta Magazine's next issue. And what a terrific, funny, poignant book. Just so much to rave about here! Trot on over to your independent bookstore or public library and be first in line for this one.
