NativeMoreSo begins the tale of latter-day Charleston and its curious secession. The schism occurs when the Sportsmans Jamboree (including Hunters for Jesus), Bravado Arts Festival, and Tri-County Mini-Storage Convention converge on the city. Native Charlestonians (those born right the first time) and an accumulation of tourists, or cumyahs, and carpetbaggers find themselves unbound from the conventions of family, community, even geography. Following the course of the errant island and its inhabitants as they wrestle with the new reality of living a life adrift, Charlie Geer presents a masterful and hilarious send-up of the nuances of entrenched society, and the foibles of the human condition.
