Southern Living Says Texans are Reading Fire Ants

Southern Living magazine includes NewSouth author Gerald Duff’s short story collection Fire Ants as one of the books Texans are reading in their August 2008 issue. In their “Texas Living” section, the magazine notes:

Earlier this year the Texas Institute of Letters named this collection of stories as a finalist for Best Book of Fiction of 2007. Gerald writes with such passion about his native land—the Texas Gulf Coast—along with other cities such as Memphis and Baltimore. His stories are set in time periods ranging from distant past to present. These may be the only fire ants you’ll ever love.

Fire Ants is available from NewSouth Books,, or your favorite online and local booksellers.
