Writers of the American South

The recent book Writers of the American South: Their Literary Landscapes (Rizzoli, 2005) features the homes of North Carolina authors Thomas Wolfe and Allan Gurganus. Wolfe’s Old Kentucky Home (now a state historic site) will be familiar to readers of Look Homeward, Angel as “Dixieland.” Gurganus’s elaborately restored historic Hillsborough house is featured on the cover of the book and in a nice fold-out section in this lavishly illustrated volume.
