More information

A classic work of Texas fiction from popular poet and historian M.E.M. Davis, Under the Man-Fig was first published in 1895. Part romance, part satire, and part realism, this entertaining novel takes place in the fictional town of Thornham on the Texas Gulf Coast. Under the sprawling branches of the ancient man-fig tree in the town square, all the male gossips of Thornham sit around and spin their colorful yarns-and in so doing, unwittingly weave a folk history of the Old South. This important work resounds with a reading from narrator Sally Darling.
