Charles Reagan Wilson has a knack for approaching a subject from an unanticipated direction. His studies of southern culture often diverge from the mainstream toward the periphery of Moon Pies, Goo Goo Clusters, Elvis, and professional wrestling. Some readers find that off-putting. Others consider it fascinating. Judgment & Grace in Dixie is vintage Wilson—witty, well written, perceptive, and sometimes a little too large to swallow in one bite.
