Overview

Enjoy these literary conversations with some of the foremost authors writing in America today. Though writing is what they do best, talking about literature is an act that the Mississippi writers included here do marvelously well. This is the second of two volumes of interviews with some of the state’s prizewinning writers. This book shows that Mississippi continues to flourish with authors of importance and acclaim. Included in this volume are Jones’s informal conversations with Walker Percy, Margaret Walker, Ellen Douglas, Willie Morris, Turner Cassity, and James Whitehead.

This book provides new insights into understanding the views, the works, and the craft of principal American authors who are also Mississippians. They speak with candor about themselves and tell of the urges that brought them to write the books and stories for which they are best known.
