Although Parrish's book focuses on the writing program at Hollins College, she gives an excellent historical account about how private southern women's finishing schools transitioned into nationally respected academic institutions.
Parrish writing style is straightforward and direct. Her research is convincing, and the many quotations, anecdotes, and stories she includes make the book entertaining.
Several years ago when this book was first published, I read it and found it interesting, but recently, having to prepare a lecture about southern fiction, I found Parrish's book to be a valuable resource. I also found her book insightful, enjoyable, and a fine consideration about southern life and culture.
