I needed a little inspiration for my book, and so I paid a visit while I was in town.

Oxford, Mississippi is a magical place. It’s full of soul and hearty southern culture and fine gentleman’s stores that make me want to buy gentleman’s clothing just because the stores are so spiffy. And they have a world famous book store called Square Books, because it is, well, on the square. The courthouse square to be exact.

If you’re looking for a soulful road trip, a drive through Mississippi is highly recommended.
