The Watermelon King by Daniel Wallace( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Watermelon King takes readers back to Ashland, Alabama -- immortalized in Big Fish -- a fictional town whose identity is based on its long-ago abundance of watermelons. Thomas Rider knows almost nothing about his parents, only that his mother died the day he was born in Ashland. When his grandfather dies, he travels there and interviews the townspeople, learning of the town's bizarre past. Most important, he learns about the Watermelon Festival, which at one time occurred annually and would symbolically ensure the continued fertility of the crop that sustained them -- and how his mother came to destroy it. Piecing together his own identity as well as that of the town, Thomas finds himself immersed in a series of events that turns everything he knows upside down. Outrageous at times and heartbreaking at others, The Watermelon King is a vivid exploration of the power of history and of storytelling, of identity and myth. This novel is Wallace's bravest, most provocative, and most inventive work to date"--Publisher's description

Carolina writers at home( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Beaufort to Boone and a dozen places in between, Carolina Writers at Home is a rich collection of true stories showcasing the houses where some of the most notable contemporary Southern authors--including Jill McCorkle, Nikky Finney, Allan Gurganus, Clyde Edgerton, and Michael Parker have forged their writing lives. The homes in these essays range from the classic bungalow and mid-century modern ranch house to wilder locales: a church, a trailer, and a sparsely-inhabited barrier island. Alongside the essays, Rob McDonald's evocative photographs capture the writers in their habitat, preserving their distinct personalities as well as the particular character of the house and place they inhabit. From the simple pleasures of Cassandra King's writing room, to the hilarious and sometimes terrifying intrusions of curious wildlife in George Singleton's realm, this unique anthology invites the reader to step inside some of the South's best loved writers' private worlds and see whant makes their houses truly their own. It shows how collections of objects can transform a simple house into Daniel Wallace's ark or Josephine Humphreys' museum, creating a sheltering place for a creative mind at work. [This book] pays homage to those who have taken inspiration form the beauty and singularity of the Carolina landscape and turned it into the written word. -- Front jacket flap
