The stories in this collection are all connected by style, location, mood, and theme. They are introduced by a section which questions the distinction of "Southern" writing. The introduction argues that a story's simply taking place in the South is not enough for a work of fiction to be meaningfully classified as Southern. The introduction suggests that literature characteristically matching what most people think of as Southern is most often written out of affectation.
