Magnolias in December : Growing Up in the South in the 1950's
The American South of the 1950's was a very different place from the society of today. Magnolias in December is a look back to a time when life was in some ways worse and in many ways better than today, a time which once was but will never be again. Patrick Seamus O'Hara grew up in rural Georgia during a the last years of antebellum quiet. Great changes were about to take place. The short stories and recollections in this book remember racism which should have died, and gentility which needs to return. It is a book written not only for his grandchildren, but for all who wish a little better understanding of what it was like to grow up in the South of the 1950's.
