The Oxford American magazine has released the cover for their Spring 2014 issue, which will be on sale March 1. The issue features Steve Featherstone on a python hunting contest in the Everglades, Jamie Quatro on Flannery O'Connor's prayer journal, Rachel Monroe on the West, Texas, fertilizer plant explosion, and John T. Edge on the resurgence of potlikker, among many other things (poetry! photos of dogs!). 

There will be a release party on March 5 at the Oxford American Annex at 1300 Main Street, where you can "meet Oxford American editors and staff, mingle with friends of the magazine, and enjoy complimentary refreshments before Local Live at South on Main."

  • Review: "The Incorruptibles" by John Hornor Jacobs

    April 20, 2015
    John Hornor Jacobs doesn’t have much time to sip wine from plastic cups, mingle with the literati, or ponder the state of literary affairs, because his agent sold eight books in a single year last year, and he’s been hustling to get those contracts fulfilled ever since. Jacobs, a Little Rock native and Central High graduate, will return to the Arkansas Literary Festival this month to make up for it, his first time back at the event since 2011. /more/
  • Maya Angelou: Behind the Stamp

    April 13, 2015
    A friend just pointed me to this interesting post by Ian Crouch of the New Yorker about the U.S. Postal Service's brand-new Maya Angelou stamp, which was officially issued last week in a ceremony featuring Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. The stamp features a quotation — "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song" — that, as the Washington Post pointed out, wasn't actually written by Angelou, but by the poet Joan Walsh Anglund. /more/

    Sims Bar-B-Q — Why had I gone so many years without a visit? How could I forget that spare ribs are richer than back ribs and infinitely better when they have a good bark-like finish and Sims' nonpareil mustard-based sauce, augmented by a healthy squirt of the incendiary house hot sauce (you have to ask). The slaw is fresh. The potato salad, too. And don't forget greens unless you are a vegetarian. Yes, I said unless you are a vegetarian. The pigmeat quotient is high. Don't forget the 40's. Budweiser. None of that craft crapola here. Dinner and plenty of beer for six ran $75. Recommended. — Max Brantley

  • New music from Teenagers, DMP, Liquid Skulls, Yuni Wa and more

    Here's something new from Fayetteville band Teenagers' new EP "Wheezin' The Juice." I'd love to say something sharp and coherent about it, but nothing comes to mind. To free associate instead: San Diego, Rickenbacker, The Strokes, Capri Sun, longboards, mezcal.
