You're Not From Around Here, Are You?: Notes from a Naturalized Southerner (Paperback)
More than five decades ago, Northeast-native Martin Lehfeldt was so captivated by the South that he made it his home. Reflecting on his experiences in the aptly titled You're Not from Around Here, Are, You?, Lehfeldt has assembled a uniquely diverse collection of impressions that embrace an overview of the region's historically black colleges and universities, the unequaled pleasure of sipping a Bloody Mary on a rainy Saturday morning in New Orleans, the joys of 1960s-era first-class air travel, the discovery of a coon dog cemetery, a revelatory visit to Key West, throwing a good party, brushes with celebrity, and plenty more. Open Lehfeldt's witty collection of sketches at virtually any page and find a story that lyrically captures a moment, a feeling, and possibly a piece of your heart.
