Summary, etc.:
ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND THE BOOK: William Price Fox was completely unknown as a writer in 1962 when his collection of short works of fiction, Southern Fried, was published as a paperback original. In a review, John K. Hutchens remarked: "If you never read a line by him outside these seventeen stories . . . you would say to yourself 'this is a writer'--because that is exactly what he is." Five years and 300,000 copies later, we know how correct was Mr. Hutchens's judgment, for Fox has captivated a wide audience of book and magazine readers as an author who can reproduce the humors and cadences of the South with a deft and sure touch. Southern Fried Plus Six presents the original 1962 collection with a bonus of six new Fox stories. The new pieces range from the story of a harrowing journey on a day coach during World War II ("Have You Ever Rode Southern?") to the fun and profit of bellhopping in a posh Miami hotel ("Room 306 Doesn't Tip"). Readers of Mr. Fox's novel, Moonshine Light, Moonshine Bright will find equal pleasure in this array of Foxian frolics.
