Terry Kay is one of the South's most loved, widely acclaimed, and successful writers. Most know Kay for his bestselling novels and their star-studded movie adaptations; often his readers are not aware of the astute and humorous social critic resting behind the novelist's veil. Special Kay reveals the essayist, critic, and humorist who has written for a wide array of newspapers and magazines for years. From "The Strange Dance of the White Dog" (the essay that lead to the now-famous novel translated around the world, a bestseller in Japan) to "I was a Teenage Quarterback" and other essays, this collection proves that Kay's sense of power in words can be seen not only in his fiction but in his nonfiction as well.
