To ease us into the new semester we're embarking on a three day project highlighting recent literary lists of interest to American Studies students. To kick things off, Oxford American's Southern literary lists. They count down the best Southern novels of all time (winner: Absalom, Absalom!) and the best Southern nonfiction of all time (winner: Let Us Now Praise Famous Men). For good measure, they run through the most underrated Southern books. Another list tomorrow - but for now, any thoughts about this list?
