Summary
This biography presents the singular life of William Alexander Percy (1885-1942), a queer plantation owner, poet, and memoirist from Mississippi. Though Percy is best known as a conservative apologist of the southern racial order, this telling creates a complex and surprising portrait of a cultural relativist, sexual liberationist, and white supremacist. We follow him as he travels from Mississippi around the globe and, always, back again to the Delta. This exploration brings depth and new meaning to Percy's already compelling life story
