Siesta

'“One of the charms of this resurrected romance is its very antiquity. It has a leisurely contemplative pace and has, to use an outmoded Southernism, a ‘Chesterfieldian’ prose style that befits its style and locale, a little Georgia cotton town with a large, slightly indolent cast of characters like those in a Tennessee Williams play.”—Albuquerque Journal   “The quintessential Southern writer; funny, wise and like the best of those from the South, an incredibly good storyteller.” —Publishers Weekly   “The book has power, insidiously, unforgettably searing itself on the imagination. Just as Main Street gave new—and perhaps bitter—significance to the town of the Middle West, so Siesta will make it impossible to say of a small town in the deep South, ‘nothing ever happens’. Stribling, Faulkner, Stark Young—each presents some one facet or other of the South. Berry Fleming has somehow rationalized them all in this book.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review  '
