"Cotton by Christopher Wilson. In his book he covers nearly three decades of race and gender discord as pertains to the American South. I was first attracted by the beautiful cover and was instantly drawn in by
Wilson's writing. He has a very big imagination, which is complemented by his humor and wit. What impressed me most about Wilson was that he is British born and bred, yet his expert rendition of the southern people, the dialect, sights, sounds and scents were flawless. . . . Being able to absorb something in a limited amount of time and then almost perfectly regurgitate it is not a talent … it's a gift.''
