Barry Hannah’s Long, Lost, Happy
It’s been a hectic late fall and early winter, so posts have been pretty light here at Slushpile.net, as you’ve probably noticed. We’ll be back to a more normal schedule this week and then moving like clockwork in 2011.
But in spite of the busy days and all-nighters, I was so glad to spend Thanksgiving weekend with Barry Hannah’s Long, Lost, Happy: New and Collected Stories from Grove Press. Re-reading those classic Hannah stories, along with the previously uncollected pieces, was like catching up with an old friend. And best of all, the book has been getting a fair amount of attention from bloggers and critics. Here’s a rundown of just a few of the many posts about Hannah’s last book:
—Bryan Charles’s take on Uncle Barry.
—The Miami Herald review.
—The Austin Chronicle’s review.
—The BarnesandNoble.com review.
—a book trailer on HTMLGiant.
—the Observer’s take on the book.
—Nathaniel Rich’s recollections for BookForum.
