Style, writes William Price Fox, is not "an exclusive property in the aristocracy of the arts. A jockey, a shortstop, a used car salesman, or even a mechanic grinding valves can have it, and the feather-trimmed hookers working the curbs along Gervais and Millwood are not without it." Most of all, however, Bill Fox is not without it. Since the publication of his classic collection of short stories, Southern Fried Plus Six, propelled him into the national literary spotlight, Fox has charmed thousands of readers with his rhapsodic tales of the South. He uses humor like a scalpel to cut away pomposity. He exposes charlatans and glorifies what is real about the South and its native sons. But there is no canned humor in William Price Fox--it's all garden fresh. Chitlin Strut and Other Madrigals is a heaping helping of such humor. It's a skillful blending of fact and fiction that often leaves the reader unable to distinguish one from the other. It's Satchel Paige in the "Rhythm Room" of the Twilight Zone Bowling Alley; it's a frog-jumping contest in Springfield, South Carolina; it's Flatt and Scruggs in a thrilling performance at historic Ryman Auditorium. It's vintage Bill Fox. It's style, in the fullest sense of the word.
