My Identities Go in This Order: An Interview with Attica Locke

What can good writing do? Perhaps a valid response: good writing reflects the world back at us, back at ourselves. Attica Locke’s newest novel, BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD, a contemporary East Texas thriller, does just this.

Taxidermy and Tractors: A Look at Small Town Literature

Living in East Texas for a few years, I learned to appreciate the small towns that make up the bulk of the region. Some felt abandoned, save for a small cafe serving frozen foods in decorative dishes, a grade school cafeteria menu for adults passing through.

Ann Patchett: An Appreciation

Okay, I’ll admit it: I hadn’t read any Ann Patchett until last summer, when a friend of mine sent me an urgent text. You HAVE to read this book, she said. It’s amazing. You would love it. The book: Ann Patchett’s collection of essays, THIS IS THE STORY OF A HAPPY MARRIAGE, and since my friend has never steered my wrong, I immediately went out in search of the book.
