Lee Smith on Grundy in the Washington Post

Here in the Washington Post (of all places) are the reflections of SW Virginia literary grande dame Lee Smith on the evolution of the Town of Grundy.

The article makes me think of Dad telling me, after noticing the empty streets in Jonesville as he drove back from Rose Hill one weekend, that when he was growing up in Lee County, everybody went to town on Saturday night, to see and be seen.

I must confess that I've probably read no more than two of Lee Smith's books.
