I Don't Hate the South

Reflections on Faulkner, Family, and the South

Houston A. Baker, Jr.

I Don't Hate The South's central claim is that the South is a laboratory, metaphor, and proving ground for American polity as a whole. With incisive wit, scrupulous literary and cultural analysis, and vivid portraits of members of his own family, the author provides captivating reading and an object lesson on the United States' regional and national interdependence.
