"The drama of Montgomery's account is the realism of being over against the political and literary ideologies of the modern age which seek to substitute for this reality that the genuine poet or philosopher finds. Montgomery is at all times deadly serious and quite funny-the sign of any healthy incarnational metaphysics."
—Homiletic & Pastoral Review
"Montgomery's recovery of Southern being is nothing less than a recovery of our full human sensibility. It is an important book . . . Montgomery uncovers the still point to which our political and theological clamor must be tuned. His profound and compelling book brings us to a great height of vision, while setting us on the path of common sense and humanity."
Prescribing a way of thought by which men can regain the balance that modernity has led them to relinquish, Possum, and Other Receipts for the Recovery of "Southern" Being posits a concept of Southernness that is a state of the soul rather than a result of geography, a Southernness in which man's mind and his moments of vision are kept in harmony with nature, with the reality of the world given to man.
