Format: Paperback
As Elizabeth Woodman points out in her Preface, there are twenty-nine rather than twenty-seven stories in 27 VIEWS OF CHAPEL HILL. That just means that you get a baker's dozen of poems, fiction and essays rather than that the publishers did not major in math. What impressed me most about this collection is that there is not a dog in the bunch-- a rare gift to the reader for any anthology--although Marcie Cohen Ferris in "A Chapel Hill Walkabout" writes lovingly about the death of her family's dog Trace: "She loved completely, without judgment." Many of the essays are written by professors of creative writing at UNC; it shows. But other stories are just as good.

I particularly liked "A Life of Cooking" by Mildred (Mama Dip) Council about how she, although born into a hard farm life, through her grit and determination, has become the owner of a famous restaurant and an expert on cooking--and a good writer. The opening lines of her essay will put chills on your spine: "I was born a colored baby girl in Chatham County, North Carolina, to Ed Cotton and Effie Edwards Cotton; grew up a Negro in my youth; lived my adult life black; and am now an eighty-two-year old American." To paraphrase Langston Hughes, you too, Ms. Council, sing of America. She says she uses the "dump cooking" method of black American women since slavery of "no recipes, just measure by eye and feel and taste and testing." She encourages cooks to experiment with her recipes , to make changes and to be creative. I cannot testify for black women but many of the Southern white women I know ("I just don't know how much sugar I put in this icing") do this sort of cooking so nobody else can duplicate their pound cake or butterscotch pie.

This is the third book of this series that I have read. (27 Views of Raleigh and 27 Views of Hillsborough are the others) The essays and stories were varied, interesting and entertaining. I learned a lot about these places that I thought I knew.
