LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

hree new books -- a novel, a history, a biography -- and each with many, if not all, of its pages planted firmly on Southern soil or in Southern waters.

Stefan Kanfer has produced a lucid and straight-shooting biography of one of America's foremost comedy legends, Groucho Marx.

In a literate and highly entertaining book, Rob Nixon charts the fortunes of the "ostrich elite" and the history of their unusual product.
