Anyone make it out to the Arkansas Literary Festival? Wish I was there.

Barry Hannah would have turned 75 this week. When he died in 2010, I sent condolences to a buddy in Oxford who was studying with him. I told her I wished that I had met him. “You know him,” she wrote me. “He’s in his stories. That’s just how he talked, no kidding.”

It’s always a good weekend to re-read “Airships.”

What else you got?
