27 Views of Raleigh

27 VIEWS of RALEIGH:  The City of Oaks in Prose & Poetry, is a hometown anthology, featuring the work of twenty-seven (plus two) Raleighites who

create a literary montage of North Carolina's capital city in fiction, essays, and poetry. Novelists, poets, essayists, journalists, and even a science fiction writer   capture   the   city   in   a   variety   of   genres—spanning neighborhoods, generations, cultural and racial experiences, historic eras—reflecting   the   social,   historic, and creative fabric of Raleigh. As Wilton Barnhardt writes in the book's introduction, “We seem to have flourished not because we have solved all the problems of the New South, despite leading the way now and again, but because we the citizens of Raleigh decided to beerudite, cultured, enriched, and entertained . . ."

27 Views of Raleigh is the fifth book in Eno Publishers's 27 Views series that features the literary communities of contemporary Southern towns. The initial book was the award-winning 27 Views of Hillsborough, followed by books about Durham, Chapel Hill, and Asheville.
