"What is your favorite novel?"

South Central Review

Friday, April 30, 2021

During the pandemic, we’ve heard that a lot of people went back to read their favorite novels as comfort and sustenance through the hard times. We at South Central Review have therefore decided to do a special double issue on this topic, scheduled to appear in Fall 2021. We hope to run approximately thirty brief essays (5-8 pages in manuscript form) in which the authors reflect on the literary, artistic, or other merits of the novel in question, why it resonates as it does, and perhaps why it was important at a particular moment in history, or why it remains influential today. We also hope to interview several contemporary novelists and writers about their favorite novels as sources of or inspiration for their own work.

The Politics of Food in the United States

Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.
