Description: Pat Conroy said R. Scott Brunner's Due South, "delivers the goods, and delivers them Southern fried"; Rick Bragg said Brunner "writes like people down here talk, with beauty. "Carryin' On" more than delivers on the promise of its predecessor, with more of the disarming and hilarious insights that made Due South an instant classic, in essays like "Common is as Common Does" (what kind of behavior is just plain tacky, and what isn't), "Tastes Like Summer" (a beautiful meditation on pole beans), "Real Southern Places" (a wry look at Steve Wynn's attempts to create a southern resort), "Paschal's" (a paean to a culinary haven of classic southern culinary comfort -- in the middle of the Atlanta airport), and "The Last Time I Saw Parrish" (a fond ode to his grandparents' Alabama hometown).

"Carryin' On" celebrates the culture, the food, the eccentricities, the habits, the language, the spirit, the talk -- the overall carryin' on that make the American South a magical place.
