Gravely Concerned: Southern Writers’ Graves, by John Soward Bayne

April 15, 2010

This book presents the graves of writers from the American South. The selection is based on the authors’ popular or critical reputations and the appeal and accessibility of their grave sites. Some may dispute whether these subjects were sufficiently Southern, and whether they were truly writers, but this is certain: they’re all dead. The pictures of their graves, presented chronologically, illustrate Southern literary history, and this book memorializes the artists, some famous and some obscure.
