"What a gift Sophia Houghton, Kylan Rice, and Daniel Wallace have given us with this sharply edited, ingeniously organized anthology. Wade into nature with a short story by Wendell Berry; consider the path of love with Adriana Páramo; or root yourself in place with Ha Jin. Any journey through Southern Lights rewards the reader in much the same way the Carolina Quarterly has over seventy-five impressive years: with a capacious but always specific sense of what the South was, is, and can be."—Belle Boggs, author of The Art of Waiting
"This anthology reserves the original goals of the Carolina Quarterly—to expand upon the idea of regionalism and represent the modern South—while simultaneously linking the journal's past and present as a way to explore the possibilities of the future. A moving case study of how writing reaches into our collective psyches over time."—Matthew Wimberley, author of Daniel Boone's Window
