Bohemian South

Allen C. Shelton

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter ponders the unmistakeable draw of the South for a bohemian prodigal son. The author’s return South to Alabama is seen through time and memory from his current life in the city of Buffalo, New York. In this personal essay, a sociology of exile, the author confronts ghosts and memories of his past and the tensions of his ties to the region.

Keywords:   Alabama, Buffalo, New York, personal essay, region, south, tension
