dc.description.abstractThis collection of short fiction explores the notion of correction centered in an attachment to the Proverbs 13-24 accounts involving discipline: restitution as punishment, restitution as loving response or as intended guidance. The stories take on the various forms and repercussions of correction. Each character encounters these in meaningful ways and at different times. Occasionally the characters exist as the acting agents of recompense and at other times the objects. The work is written in the Southern literary tradition: mostly local, working-class, and agrarian. They attempt to contend with the significance of faith, family, place, and the harsh realities of life involving cultural and generational shifts. The work hopes to encompass a modern existence in the American South without arriving at a caricatured representation.en_US
