The South, by way of California

That is to say a saavy American publisher is carving out a niche as an authentic voice of the American South.
From San Francisco.

"Poindexter (publisher of MacAdam/Cage) has what today would be called a maverick approach to publishing. He befriends his authors, often by flying them out to San Francisco so they can meet the staff and thus begin a true working relationship. He is committed to fostering the entire career of an author rather than trying to coax out best sellers and then abandoning the writers who fail to produce them. Above all, his ambition is to publish literature and contribute something meaningful to the culture in which he lives.
He's certainly making some damn fine books. I'm blown away by this at the moment, but I've liked everything from the press so far.
