2. Down Home is a contradiction and a secret and a history waiting to be read. Down Home is a wound and a joy and a poem, a knot of complication that scholars and reporters have the audacity to assume they know with a little bit of research. But you cannot know a place without loving it and hating it and feeling everything in between. You cannot understand a complex people by only looking at data—something inside you has to crack to let in the light so your eyes and brain and heart can adjust properly.

  10. "When I moved back here in 2010, I drove. I had never driven across the country. When I was driving through Oklahoma, I had a little bit of anxiety, like the opposite of claustrophobia — because there’s just nothing there. And then, I swear, right as I crossed the state line into Arkansas, it got green, and the road started curving, and I was like, ‘OK. This, I’m familiar with. There’s kudzu vines and Chik-fil-A.’ It was all downhill from there."
