Robert H. Brinkmeyer Jr.
"Robert Brinkmeyer has discovered an important new direction in Southern writing. He shows how contemporary Southern writers have begun investigating the history and interrogating the myth of the West and, in the process, reinventing the literary traditions of their region. Fresh perception spring from nearly every page, and the argument as a whole is at once innovative, provocative, and thoroughly convincing. This indispensable and wonderfully informative book will help to redraw the map of Southern literature, and it confirms Brinkmeyer's reputation as one of the leading figures in Southern studies." -Richard Gray, author of Writing the South
"Brinkmeyer writes a lively, elegant prose . . . full of useful truths that remind his audience of why they read: to locate themselves and their cultures.
In Remapping Southern Literature, Brinkmeyer proposes that today's southern writers are not by this shift abandoning southern culture but are instead expanding its reach by seeking to balance the ideals of the South and West.

Robert Brinkmeyer discussed the importance of Christian narrative in contemporary southern literature at a time of religious renaissance in the South and southern disgrace in the White House. He contrasted the work of southern artists of faith with the gothic scepticism of Flannery O'Connor, suggesting that in spite of a southern preoccupation with evil and sin, southern writers of faith accept the need for Jesus to exist as a figure of hope and moral renewal.
