Life in the Deep South, by Gabriel Aguilera

Shelby Foote

Shelby Foote is my favorite Southern author.  Heck, he might be my favorite American author.  See him interviewed at his home here.  The first half hour is definitely worth watching.  He speaks of writing and his favorite authors, including Proust and Shakespeare.  He wrote about 500 words a day when writing the Civil War, A Narrative (2,968-page, 1.2 million-word history).
