Not a single thing I remember from the first place but this: the sense of the place, the savor of the genie-soul of the place which every place has or is not a place.
–Walker Percy, The Moviegoer
More on my first foray into the Tennessee Williams Festival when I’m back from the track, and if an afternoon at the Fairgrounds isn’t one of the shrines to the genie-soul of this place I don’t know what is. Today’s featured author is Tom Ainslie, and the cocktail the mint julep. I don’t give a damn about Easter. Where’s my best straw hat?
