A memoir by novelist Daphne Athas about coming of age in Chapel Hill during the Depression, life during WWII and the McCarthy era. Athas delves into the world of Southern writers and the shifting of a small college town into the New South's technocracy juggernaut. These tales snatch "the veil off racism, classism, politics and Vanity Fair-worthy scandals that haunt," says writer Randall Kenan.
