In a lot of ways, this book feels like a case of truth is stranger than fiction. Grant's writing immerses you immediately into this insular community, a place that is amazing and disturbing, beautiful and terrifying. And, while a lot of this feels exotic and far away (cotillions, plantations, gigantic portraits of modern children in Confederate uniforms), there were definitely familiar elements, as well (well meaning progressives who try to braing about much-needed change in their community, but are ultimately beaten down or thwarted by the majority still firmly mired in racism disguised as tradition).
