From William Gilmore Simms to Julia Peterkin, from DuBose Heyward to Benjamin Brawley, from Pat Conroy and James Dickey to Percival Everett and Josephine Humphreys, this extraordinary illustrated volume by Edwin C. Epps presents three centuries of literary achievement in South Carolina.

More than seventy years have passed since such a comprehensive volume about South Carolina writers has been published. "Edwin Epps's remarkable panoramic history of literary South Carolina is a timely new reading and reminder of the state's rich written and storytelling tradition," says literary scholar Thomas L. Johnson.
