No one has stories quite like a Southerner has stories, and Folwell Dunbar proves that tenfold. From swimming in the swamps to tempting death in some unlikely situations, Folwell has compiled his most outrageous stories into a new book called He Falls Well. NolaVie’s Kelley Crawford caught up with Folwell to talk life, writing, and choices.
