Cable, Mark Twain, and William Faulkner (LSU Press, 1996), and Resisting History: Gender, Modernity, and Authorship in William Faulkner, Zora Neale Hurston, and Eudora Welty (also LSU Press, 2007). She is also the coeditor of The Oxford Handbook of the Literature of the U.S. South (Oxford University Press, 2016) and the author of dozens of scholarly essays about southern writers.
