Although my brother and I were born and grew up in central Kansas, our family is southern, from east Texas back to Mississippi and Louisiana on our mother's side, and from Arkansas back to Tennessee and North Carolina on our father's. In such families the living and the dead often are equally present in story and reference; a great-grandmother appears at the dinner table when her favorite dish is passed; a despised third cousin, long in his grave, attempts yet another swindle; the unjust death of an infant rings heavily down through generation after generation. Nothing is ever lost. All is told again and again and again.
