Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barry Hannah is the best fiction writer to appear in the South since Flannery O'Connor." —Larry McMurtry

"Strong, original, tragic and funny in the same voice-a writer of violent honesty and power in the creative Southern tradition." —Alfred Kazin

"These stories are wonderful in the ways Mark Twain, Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor are wonderful when they are working the great vein of fierce and pitiless Southern comedy. The war stories in particular-joining, as they do for me, the clownish misery and colossal overkill of Vietnam to the American Civil War-are masterpieces of their kind. Hannah is more than just a new voice-he is half a dozen brilliant new voices." —Philip Roth

"Barry Hannah takes fiction by surprise-scenes, shocks, sounds and amazements: an explosive but meticulous originality." —Cynthia Ozick

"Talents as broad as this thrive in novels but rarely take to the more constricting form of the short story. Airships proves Barry Hannah an exception . . . artfully rounded-off vignettes jumping with humor and menace. . . . The stories bounce off and echo one another, giving the book an impact greater than the sum of its parts. . . . Most young Southern writers resent being compared to such past giants as Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor. In embracing the gothic mode, Hannah has planted himself firmly on their turf. On the evidence of this book, their shadows are not stunting his growth." —Time

"Exhilarating! Hannah is afraid of nothing in experience. He runs to meet life and to transform it." —Denis Donoghue

"Barry Hannah's writing is raw and exhilarating, tortured, radiant, vicious, aggressive, funny, and streaked with rage, pain and bright poetic truth." —Philadelphia Inquirer

"Hannah's stories are powerful, and powerfully original." —John Gardner

"One reads Barry Hannah and is amazed! Airships places him in the very first rank of American literary artists, and leaves us breathless with the force of its feeling." —James Dickey

"Barry Hannah is an original, vital talent." —The Houston Chronicle

    Why this book of short stories received any praise is beyond my

    Why this book of short stories received any praise is beyond my understanding. I guess strange, disgusting and completely implausible are the new standard for fiction. One reviewer compared the writer to Mark Twain, I don't think so. The only reason I finished the book was see if any of the stories would out-bizarre the one with cannibalism.
