"Cornbread Nation 7"
Cornbread Nation 7, edited by Francis Lam, brings together the best Southern food writing from recent years, including well-known food writers
such as Sara Roahen and Brett Anderson, a couple of classic writers such as Langston Hughes, and some newcomers. The collection, divided into five
sections ("Come In and Stay Awhile," "Provisions and Providers," "Five Ways of Looking at Southern Food," "The South, Stepping Out," and "Southerners
Going Home"), tells the stories both of Southerners as they move through the world and of those who ended up in the South. It explores from where and
from whom food comes, and it looks at what food means to culture and how it relates to home.
