Valdosta, GA, April 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Tales of a Southern Palazzo: A Memoir by John Clark McCall, Jr. The author's most recent book to date is a 6.14 x 9.21 paperback in the family and relationships category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/talesofasouthernpalazzo was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays, the authors of Being Dead Is No Excuse, confide, “We wish that we had written this book! It takes the Crocheted Bedpan Award. Every Southerner should read John’s book. Laughter is good for what ails you and John will make you laugh.”
Tales of a Southern Palazzo reads like fiction although it is a loving memoir of a “complex, twisted, and highly fragrant story” about Moultrie, Georgia, that is basically true. Using a “singularly distinctive mansion that cements all of the Southern waywardness” as a backdrop, Tales recounts the hilarious and oftentimes unbelievable events that have occurred during the tenure of three Southern bachelors within and without its Palladian walls. At the axis of these stories is the author’s aunt, Alyce McCall, who struggles to keep “her” neighborhood homogenized and free of anything but the norm prescribed by this small town well below the Mason-Dixon Line.
The author includes a “tell it all” treatise on his family and friends and the stories they have lived. From the celebrated Cloister Hotel on Sea Island, Georgia, to the dove fields of Colquitt County, Tales of a Southern Palazzo celebrates the uniqueness of tragedy and humor in the deep South, defying the reader to discern which is which.
93 pages in length, Tales of a Southern Palazzo: A Memoir is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the family and relationships category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Tales of a Southern Palazzo meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.
Additionally, Tales of a Southern Palazzo can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
Format: 6.14 x 9.21 paperback
