Description: When Josephine Haxton wrote her first novel back in 1962, she took the pseudonym Ellen Douglas to guard her genteel Southern family's privacy. Now, at the age of seventy-eight and seven highly acclaimed works of fiction later, Ellen Douglas can finally speak the truth. Here, in her first work of nonfiction, she wonderfully captures the Southern oral tradition on paper, recounting family stories that would have been too personal, too painful to reveal while the main characters were still alive. Recalling the world of social facade, proper manners, and Presbyterian thrift, Douglas writes of uncomfortable truths about her kinfolk and family friends around Natchez, Mississippi -- and boldly examines the tenuous relationships between her white forebears and their black servants. In Truth, one of the most prestigious Southern writers dares to grapple with the burden of family history, and beautifully experiments with the delicate line between truth and fiction.
