The inimitable ZZ Packer tells Suicide girls that she’s working on a novel. And of her home state she says:
For me I had a tough time growing up in Kentucky and on the other hand it was good for me. But Iâ€™m not here to spread propaganda about the state of Kentucky. Itâ€™s not to say that I have a problem with everyone in Kentucky because I donâ€™t know them all.
If you haven’t read Packer’s Drinking Coffee Elsewhere, particularly if you fancy yourself a connoisseur of Southern literature, be sure to pick it up.
