Unbelievable happiness and Final SorrowThe Hemingway-Pfeiffer Marriage Ruth A. Hawkins the only biography of ernest hemingways second marriage

It was the glittering intellectual world of 1920s Paris expatriates in which Pauline Pfeiffer, a writer for Vogue, met Ernest Hemingway and his wife, Hadley, among a circle of friends that included Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Dos Passos, and Dorothy Parker. Pauline grew close to Hadley but eventually forged a stronger bond with Hemingway himself; with her stylish looks and dedication to Hemingways writing, Pauline became the source of unbelievable happiness for Hemingway and, in 1927, his second wife. Pauline was her husbands best editor and critic, and her wealthy family provided moral and financial support, including the conversion of an old barn to a dedicated writing studio at the family home in Piggott, Arkansas. The marriage lasted thirteen years, some of Hemingways most productive, and the couple had two children. But the unbelievable happiness met with final sorrow, as Hemingway wrote, and Pauline would be the second of Hemingways four wives. Unbelievable Happiness and Final Sorrow paints a full picture of Pauline and the essential role she played in Ernest Hemingways becoming one of Americas greatest literary figures. ruth a. hawkins has been an administrator at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro for more than thirty years and established its Arkansas Heritage Sites program, which includes the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum in Piggott. She has been recognized at the state, regional, and national level for her work in historic preservation and heritage tourism.

Announcing the Winner of the 2012 $5,000 Miller Williams Arkansas Poetry Prize

rousing the MachineryPoems by Catherine MacDonald Word-play and world-play: the untidy geographies of an ordinary life

While keenly aware of the world beyond, these poems draw discerningly on memories of familymotherhood and childhood, a brother in prison, the loss of a childMacDonald reminding us of the inescapable clanging together, the swinging apart, / whats cleaved and the whole, and finally that Sanctuaryit arrives in disguise. And it arrives in the wise surprise of beautifully made poems such as these. Rousing the Machinery is remarkable. Claudia emerson, author of Figure Studies: Poems Composed of almost equal parts narrative and song interwoven, these impressive poems showcase a mastery of both the necessary story-thread and the lyric leap that mystery requiresas the thread breaks and rejoins to remake what has gone before. MacDonalds skill with interior slant-rhyme and subtle form (see How to Leave Home) is superb, and is the weave that steadies and patterns what the books epigraph describes as the causal small decisions / almost random, those accidents . . . but of course, because this is genuine poetry, nothing here is finally small, and the art of that is no accident. Word-play and world-play here are at once startling and simple; and Rousing the Machinery is a simply stunning debut. Betty adcock, author of Slantwise: Poems There is in Catherine MacDonalds poems a quality of observation and narrative specificity so acute as to be almost painful. This is less a promising debut collection than it is the work of a writer of maturity and accomplishment. What a rich and abiding book this is! David Wojahn, author of World Tree Catherine MacDonald lives in Richmond, Virginia, and teaches writing at Virginia Commonwealth University. Her poems and criticism have been published in the Crab Orchard Review, Southern Indiana Review, Blackbird, Louisville Review, and other journals. She is also the author of the chapbook How to Leave Home. The University of Arkansas Press Poetry Series is edited by Enid Shomer.

teaching Myself to Sew My father did the sewing in our house stripes on his uniform, loose buttons, kneepatches, hems. After work or before, hed gather what was torn. Across the kitchen table, Id watch him ply scissors and thread, a fine needle between his thumb and thick fingers, and Id try to teach myself to sew worrying thread through a washrag, basting uneven rowsbut again and again, my stitching pulled loose from the cloth. Because I studied his face more closely than his hands, I never saw how he began, with that necessary snarl, the knot in the strand.

The University of Arkansas Press Poetry Series, Edited by Enid Shomer

the Coal LifePoems by Adam Vines Mined from linguistic, literary, and historical underworlds.

Adam Viness command of the sounds of the English language is delicious, but it never prettifies what he sees in the world. These are poems of real life and of the physical condition of being alive in all its joy and difficulty. A hardscrabble childhood, a self-demanding adulthood, both emerge in poems full of fine ironies and a mature acceptance. Mary Jo Salter, author of A Phone Call to the Future: New and Selected Poems Arguably the finest metaphor in The Coal Life is found in a dynamite box: a mine rats nest of chewed scripture and company scrip. But in every poem, Adam Vines balances a tension perfect as it is uneasybetween lifes urge for change, flight, and sex and the more patient resolve of faith in a world beyond the mutable zodiac of this hard-wrought human universe. Perhaps these poems were conceived in the shadow myth of ruins, but they emerge as the best poems doleaning to the light. The Coal Life is remarkableand necessary. Claudia emerson, author of Figure Studies: Poems Adam Viness The Coal Life is a book mined from linguistic, literary, and historical underworlds. These poems keenly observe and deeply ponder; they dig into the mineral dark of memory, uncovering along the way forgotten and abandoned voices, idioms, occupations, thwarted desires, moments of grace in misery, and accidents of astounding beauty. An extraordinary first collection, The Coal Life is built to last even while it rests upon the shadow myth of ruins. alan Shapiro, author of Old War: Poems adam Vines is assistant professor of English at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and editor of the Birmingham Poetry Review. His poems have been published in North American Review, The Cincinnati Review, and The Greensboro Review.

reclamation The storm defies everything. Clouds wangle the day into early submission. The rain never forgets, cuts worry lines where streams ran before blasting buried them, carries silt and seed down to hills now stripped into valleys. Valleys piled into hills settle, consume themselves inch by inch. Pulp pines creep to the crumbling edge of a ridge, already top-heavy, drawn like bows from leaning to the light.

talk poetryPoems and Interviews with Nine American Poets David Baker important poets talking about the art today

David Baker has brought together in this remarkable volume some of the most probing and revelatory interviews he has conducted for our pagesinterviews that plunge quickly beyond the trivial to the deep concerns, the personal insights, the creative sparks that can ignite in conversation with these marvelous poets. David Lynn, editor of the Kenyon Review With his incisive and instructive questions, David Baker is able to draw out responses that touch upon not only the lives and poetic craft of his subjects, but also upon the nature of art and the life of poetry itself. This is without question a must-have volume for everyone who loves American poetry. David St. John, author of Auroras: New Poems David Baker, a consummate poet, is also one of our most intelligent, open-minded and readable critics. In this book, at once a personal anthology and a collection of perceptive, lively interviews, he gives readers a sense of the scope of American poetry today, with a keen eye for its convergences as well as its dissents. Marilyn hacker, author of Names: Poems What is more direct and intimate than one-to-one conversation? Here two forces in American poetry, the Kenyon Review and the University of Arkansas Press, bring together discussions between one of Americas leading poets and editors, David Baker, and nine of the most exciting poets of our day. The poets, who represent a wide array of vocations and aesthetic positions, open up about their writing processes, their reading and education, their hopes for and discontents with the contemporary scene, and much more, treating readers to a view of the range and capacity of contemporary American poetry. David Baker is author or editor of fourteen books of poetry and criticism. He holds the Thomas B. Fordham Chair at Denison University, teaches regularly in the Warren Wilson College MFA program, and is the poetry editor of the Kenyon Review.

things you need to hearCollected Memories of Growing Up in Arkansas, 18901980 Margaret Jones Bolsterli Like listening to stories from your grandparents

Margaret Bolsterlis judicious selection of the memories of dozens of Arkansans provides fascinating glimpses into what it meant to grow up in a poor rural state. It is a story of hard work, humor, friendship, and talking around the dinner table. These reminiscences remind us of our own childhood and help readers better understand that sense of community we Arkansans continue to share. Bobby roberts, director of the Central Arkansas Library System Margaret Jones Bolsterli has a knack for locating interesting and knowledgeable people to interview, and she also asks the right questions of her informants, questions that delve deeply into the lives of Arkansans in the last century. This is an important book, and it adds considerably to the knowledge of our state. tom Dillard, author of Statesmen, Scoundrels, and Eccentrics: A Gallery of Amazing Arkansans Things You Need to Hear gathers memories of Arkansans from all over the state with widely different backgrounds. In their own words, these people tell of the things they did growing up in the early twentieth century to get an education, what they ate, how they managed to get by during difficult times, how they amused themselves and earned a living, and much more. Some of Margaret Bolsterlis informants, as she calls them, are famous (Johnny Cash, Maya Angelou, Levon Helm, Joycelyn Elders), but many more are not. Their vivid personal stories have been taken from published works and from original interviews conducted by Bolsterli. All together, these tales preserve memories of ways of life that are compelling, entertaining, and certainly well worth remembering. Margaret Jones Bolsterli is the author of Born in the Delta and During Wind and Rain and the editor of Vinegar Pie and Chicken Bread and A Remembrance of Eden. She is professor emerita of English at the University of Arkansas.

Things You Need to Hear will accompany an exhibit opening at Little Rocks Old Statehouse Museum in February 2012.

yazooDeep-Southern Town Integration in aWillie Morris With a Foreword by Jennifer Jensen Wallach and an Afterword by JoAnne Prichard Morris

A civil rights classic, available again In 1970 Brown v. Board of Education was sixteen years old, and fifteen years had passed since the Brown II mandate that schools integrate with all deliberate speed. Still, after all this time, it was necessary for the U.S. Supreme Court to order thirty Mississippi school districtswhose speed had been anything but deliberateto integrate immediately. One of these districts included Yazoo City, the hometown of writer Willie Morris. Installed productively on safe, sane Manhattan Island, Morris, though compelled to write about this pivotal moment, was reluctant to return to Yazoo and do no less than serve as cultural ambassador between the flawed Mississippi that he loved and a wider world. I did not want to go back, Morris wrote. I finally went home because the urge to be there during Yazoos most critical moment was too elemental to resist, and because I would have been ashamed of myself if I had not. The result, Yazoo, is part reportage, part memoir, part ethnography, part social critiqueand one of the richest accounts we have of a communitys attempt to come to terms with the realities of seismic social change. As infinitely readable and nuanced as ever, Yazoo is available again, enhanced by an informative foreword by historian Jenifer Jensen Wallach and a warm and personal afterword on Morriss writing life by his widow, JoAnne Prichard Morris. Willie Morris (19341999) was the editor in chief of Harpers and the author of many works of fiction and nonfiction, including North Toward Home and My Dog Skip. Jennifer Jensen Wallach is the author of Closer to the Truth than Any Fact: Memoir, Memory, and Jim Crow, a study of how memoirs can best be utilized as historical source material. She is also editor of Arsnick: The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in Arkansas. Joanne prichard Morris was long-time executive editor of the University Press of Mississippi and coauthor of Barefootin: Life Lessons from the Road to Freedom. She was married to Willie Morris from 1990 to 1999.

Jelly roll

A Black Neighborhood in a Southern Mill Town Charles Thomas

A classic Arkansas ethnography, reissued Jelly Roll, a small community of African Americans living in company housing outside the Calion Lumber Company in Calion, Arkansas, is the subject of this ethnographic study written by Charles E. Thomas, an anthropologist whose family owned the mill. Originally published in 1986, Jelly Roll combines Thomass unique perspective as both an academician and the grandson of the sawmills founder. Thomas conducted extensive interviews covering three generations among the eighty-four households forming this community, illuminating the residents lives in an unusually thorough fashion. Now back in print and enhanced with later interviews revealing attitudes of growing restlessness over the slow movement toward racial equality and opportunity, Jelly Roll will be a welcome reference for anyone interested in African American studies, the South, or the history of sawmill towns. Charles e. thomas was a professor of anthropology at Washington University for seventeen years. He returned to his hometown and the Calion Lumber Company in 1975 and has run the company ever since.

UpSet pressVocalisesPoems by Jenny Husk In the poems of Jennifer Husk the world is a membrane words bounce against and poke into, skating on the scrim then delving below in quick sharp digs of fragment, image, and gut-punch. This work is river dialogue and glare on the surface all at once, achieving experiment, a sustained rhetoric, intimacy and political weight in one go. If Van Gogh graffitied The Starry Night on an urban wall then broke it apart with a mallet, you might get at something resembling the rough and precious texture of a Husk poem. Her register is horizon-wide and she jumps its length in a blink: the same stanza holds rooms of dust and harmony, then enjoins us to hack the map and tag it city-wide. This is a skateboard train anyone wishing to journey the sidewalk, desert, star, and cerebellum should hop on, presto. ana Boievi, author of Stars of the Night Commute April 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 80 pages $10.95 paper 978-0-9760142-4-9

Butler Center BooksDeep Down in the DeltaFolktales and Poems Greg Alan Brownderville, with paintings by Billy Moore In Deep Down in the Delta, a book like no other, tales and poems by award-winning writer Greg Alan Brownderville are paired with paintings by outsider artist Billy Moore to evoke the Arkansas Delta in unforgettable fashion. One of the most soulful, most mysterious regions in America comes to life in words and pictures. Reminiscent of Jean Toomers Cane and Alice Rae Yelens Passionate Visions of the American South, this book leads the reader into strange country where a buzzard the size of an airplane circles over buried Confederate treasure; an indestructible rabbit haunts a graveyard; a pool table dances across a juke joint; and a hoodoo woman treats a girl who flies around the house like a balloon losing air. The poems are folkloristic, the tales poetic, and the paintings downright beautiful. greg alan Brownderville, a native of Pumpkin Bend, Arkansas, is the author of the poetry collection Gust (Northwestern University Press, 2011). He completed an MFA in poetry at the University of Mississippi in 2008 and currently teaches creative writing at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri. Billy Moore picked up a paintbrush seven years ago when his daughter, Lauren, then four, left out her Crayola paint set. He has been painting ever since. Moore has clients all over the world and travels throughout the Southeast to attend arts festivals. Moore lives in Memphis, Tennessee.

Unvarnished arkansas

The Naked Truth about Nine Famous Arkansans Steven Teske A man squanders his family fortune until he is penniless, loses every time he runs for public office, and yet is so admired by the people of Arkansas that the General Assembly names a county in his honor. A renowned writer makes her home in the basement of a museum until she is sued by some of the most prominent women of the state regarding the use of the rooms upstairs. A brilliant inventor who nearly built the first airplane is also vilified for his eccentricity and possible madness. Author Steven Teske rummages through Arkansass colorful past to findand unvarnishsome of the states most controversial and fascinating figures. The nine people featured in this collection are not the most celebrated products of Arkansas. More than half of them were not even born in Arkansas, although all of them lived in Arkansas and contributed to its history and culture. But each of them has achieved a certain stature in local folklore, if not in the story of the state as a whole. March 6 x 9, 160 pages $19.95 paper 978-1-935106-35-7 Steven teske works at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, where he is an archival assistant and staff member of the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture. He also teaches at Arkansas State UniversityBeebe and is the co-author, with Velma B. Branscum Woody, of Homefront Arkansas: Arkansans Face Wartime, published by the Butler Center in 2009.

Butler Center for arkansas Studieshangin times in Fort SmithA History of Executions in Judge Parkers Court Jerry Akins For twenty-one years, Judge Isaac C. Parker ruled in the federal court at Fort Smith, Arkansas, the gateway to the wild and lawless Western frontier. Parker, however, was not the hangin judge that casual legend portrays. In most cases, the guilt or innocence of those tried in his court really was not in question once their stories were told. These horrible crimes would have screamed out for justice in any circumstance. Author Jerry Akins has finally arrived at the real story about Parker and his court by comparing newspaper accounts of the trials and executions to what has been written and popularized in other books. Jerry akins is a native of Kansas City, Missouri, and worked as a missile technician for fourteen years. In 1980, he relocated to Fort Smith, Arkansas, where he began to immerse himself in the history of the area, including the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas and the cases of Judge Isaac C. Parker. He is a frequent contributor to the Fort Smith Historical Society Journal.

Missouris Public Affairs University, Teaching Cultural Competence, Ethical Leadership, and Community Engagement

Daring to excel

The First 100 Years of Southwest Missouri State University Edited by Donald D. LandonMore than a centennial celebration of Missouris second-largest public university, Daring to Excel charts the history of Missouri State University through a tumultuous century of wars and peace, economic booms and busts, and the many cultural, political, technological, and media revolutions that have impacted the Ozarks, Missouri, and the nation as a whole. Some of the books subjects belong to the university uniquely: its stories of influential teachers and alumni, its triumphs and challenges in pedagogy, varsity sports, public entertainments, and in community relations generally. In the research and writing of so expansive a history, Landon has relied on numerous essayistcontributors, including Robert H. Bradley, Robert Flanders, Albert R. Gordon, John H. Keiser, Arthur Mallory, Andrea Mostyn, Jon Moran, Don Payton, Mark Stillwell, Tina Stillwell, and Tom Strong. Its been said that all history is local history, and Daring to Excel gives the proof. Missouri State alumni will have an abiding interest in this entertaining, informative, and handsomely illustrated publication. But, given the universitys regional impact and the numerous national headlines it has generated over the years, Landons book deserves a wider readership. No one can be considered a serious student of the Ozarksor, for that matter, of public education in the American Midwestwithout having Daring to Excel on his or her bookshelf. George H. Jensen, author of Some of the Words Are Theirs Donald D. Landon is professor emeritus and former head of the Sociology Department at Missouri State University, where he served for twenty-eight years. His book publications include Country Lawyers: The Impact of Context on Professional Practice.

Its lists include brief biographies and lifetime stats for replacement players who, before Pearl Harbor, would have been over-the-hill or below major-league quality. But, in war or in peace, baseball was the American pastime. Writing early in 1942, President Roosevelt urges Kenesaw M. Landis (then baseball commissioner) to play ball! for the sake of morale. Allen prints the letter in facsimile: It would be best for the country to keep baseball going, writes Roosevelt, even if the quality of the teams is lowered by the greater use of older players. Since baseball is a game of statistics, . . . people have often wondered what a player would have achieved if he had not lost playing time during his military service. This is where If They Hadnt Gone comes to the front. The predictions . . . are sure to invoke a lot of discussion and comment. . . . If They Hadnt Gone is excellent reading for the true baseball fan. Jerry Lumpe, from the foreword

Moon City press Blue SabineA Novel Gerald DuffBlue Sabine is a story of five generations of women in the same family, told in their voices, along with those of some men of Holt blood. It is set along the Sabine River, which divides the state of Texas from Louisiana and the Deep South. From 1867 (when the Holts first came to Texas) to the present, the novel chronicles the emotional lives of grandmothers, mothers, daughters, and nieces, all bound by kinship and history. Each comes to terms with being a woman in the West, in Texas, and in her own way and her own time. In its flow and its setting of boundaries, the Sabine River comes to reflect what remains and what changes in the way the Holt women see their world and themselves. The river forever flows, and it pulls at all it touches, one of the characters says, yet it never leaves, and it never stays.
