The courting of Marcus Dupree by Willie Morris( file )

At the time of Marcus Dupree's birth, when Deep South racism was about to crest and shatter against the Civil Rights Movement, Willie Morris journeyed north in a circular transit peculiar to southern writers. His memoir of those years, North Toward Home, became a modern classic. In The Courting of Marcus Dupree he turned again home to Mississippi to write about the small town of Philadelphia and its favorite son, a black high-school quarterback. In Marcus Dupree, Morris found a living emblem of that baroque strain in the American character called "southern."Beginning on the summer practice fie

The last of the Southern girls by Willie Morris( Book )
7 editions published between 1973 and 1994 in English and held by 1,144 libraries worldwide
Carol Hollywell is beautiful, smart, elegant, and charming. A debutante from Arkansas, she is heir to a good Southern name and a small Southern fortune. She knows what she wants and, more important, knows how to get it. She is, in other words, the prototypical southern belle, a Scarlett O'Hara for the 1950s, and when she moves to Washington, D.C., in 1957, she sets the town on its ear. Willie Morris' clever novel (loosely based on a real-life figure) follows this headstrong woman from her arrival in the Capital and traces the ups and downs of her life in the political and social whirl of the city over the next decade and a half. Eventually, she becomes romantically involved with a prominent congressman, but the genuine satisfactions they find in their relationship cannot long withstand the pressures of the ambitions both of them harbor.--From publisher description
