"China Grove: Premier Issue - Fall Twenty-Thirteen" is a very interesting book filled with stories of fiction, non-fiction, interviews as well as poetry. This is a complied book of articles and short stories that helps the reader to see a broader view of various writing styles. The interview with author Ellen Gilchrist is very informational and informative. There are pictures throughout the book which helps the reader to visually see what the writer is referring to. The story by Ms. Gilchrist entitled: "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" is a very interesting story that many will enjoy. Various stories by southern writers telling their spin on their story as only they can through their imaginative mind allows the reader to be transformed back to those moments in history seeing what could have truly occurred. There are many writers of poetry included within the book once again allowing the reader to follow along through the mind and pen of various authors in this time frame.
While this book is different in nature it is in fact very interesting and written well. I commend R. Scott Anderson the Managing Editor for pulling together such interesting stories and authors to be displayed in one edition. It will be interesting to see other issues produced and how the stories are complied to once again engage the reader to a particular time frame and type of writing. Keep compiling stories that reach deep within our hearts and stir us back to our roots.
