First published in 1969 and out of print for more than twenty-five years, The Long-Legged House was Wendell Berry's first collection of essays, the inaugural work introducing many of the central issues that have occupied him over the course of his career. Three essays at the heart of this volume-?The Rise,” ?The Long-Legged House,” and ?A Native Hill” -are essays of homecoming and memoir, as the writer finds his home place, his native ground, his place on earth. As he later wrote, ?What I stand for is what I stand on,” and here we see him beginning the acts of rediscovery and resettling.

There are those who vanish into the steaming New Orleans night - and it is part-time Private Investigator and blues aficionado Lew Griffin's job to find them. A prisoner of the bottle, his past and his skin, Griffin knows every hidden corner of Hell. But the disappearance of a militant woman activist is about to carry the brilliant, tormented P.I. ever closer to a nightmare that threatens to hit him where he lives...and more brutally than he ever imagined possible. The first in James Sallis' sequence of much lauded crime novels to feature Lew Griffin.'He's right up there, one of the best of the best. His series of novels about private eye Lew Griffin is thoughtful, challenging and beautifully written'- Ian Rankin, Guardian

This new edition of Southern Writers assumes its distinguished predecessor's place as the essential reference on literary artists of the American South. Broadly expanded and thoroughly revised, it boasts 604 entries-nearly double the earlier edition's-written by 264 scholars. For every figure major and minor, from the venerable and canonical to the fresh and innovative, a biographical sketch and chronological list of published works provide comprehensive, concise, up-to-date information. Here in one convenient source are the South's novelists and short story writers, poets and dramatists, memoirists and essayists, journalists, scholars, and biographers from the colonial period to the twenty-first century. What constitutes a "southern writer" is always a matter for debate. Editors Joseph M. Flora and Amber Vogel have used a generous definition that turns on having a significant connection to the region, in either a personal or literary sense. New to this volume are younger writers who have emerged in the quarter century since the dictionary's original publication, as well as older talents previously unknown or unacknowledged. For almost every writer found in the previous edition, a new biography has been commissioned. Drawn from the very best minds on southern literature and covering the full spectrum of its practitioners, Southern Writers is an indispensable reference book for anyone intrigued by the subject.
