9781466371408: America Divine: Travels in the Hidden South

America Divine is a collection of travel stories set in the Deep South, particularly New Orleans. The stories feature voodoo practitioners, psychics, snake-handlers, con-artists, ghosts and boozy Savannah landladies and are "quirky, engaging and often sensual." Dallas John Baker looks at the South with an outsiders lens, which is certainly fresh, but also colored by the powerful myths that are associated with the Deep South. Dallas John Baker, who has been described as Truman Capote's literary heir, is the principle character of these stories. His eccentricity and idiosyncratic powers of observation make for a delightful read that is at turns nostalgic, funny, and highly enjoyable. EDITORIAL REVIEWS Dallas John Baker's writing... "has been variously described as 'offbeat and atmospheric' and as 'every bit as good as J. D. Salinger'. He has also been called 'Truman Capote's queer love-child'." - Ben Mason, QNET. Dallas John Baker "demonstrates an enviable flair for storytelling." - Graeme Aitken, DNA magazine. Dallas John Baker "is what you'd get if Victor Frankenstein made a new monster by splicing together body parts of David Sedaris, Truman Capote, Bruce Chatwin and just a bit of Djuna Barnes." - Prue Range, Goodreads.
