    June 17, 2014
    "There comes a point when you realize that you might not have a lot of time left, and there's a lot of work to be done."

  • Read a rare interview with Charles Portis about his Arkansas days

    June 17, 2014
    Jay Jennings' invaluable Charles Portis collection "Escape Velocity" must have finally been published in the U.K., because the reviews are rolling in and, though universally positive, they sure can get strange.

    April 25, 2014
    Donald Harington, the late Arkansas novelist labeled an "Ozark Surrealist" by the New York Times, was born in Little Rock in 1935 and would go on to teach art history at the University of Arkansas for 22 years. When he died in 2009, he left behind a series of deeply idiosyncratic novels set in a fictional Arkansas town called Stay More, which, as William Grimes noted in his obituary for the Times, "drew the inevitable comparisons to William Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County." Grimes also quotes from an interview with the poet Fred Chappell: "Don Harington is not an underappreciated novelist. He is an undiscovered continent." /more/
