Unbelievable happiness

and Final Sorrow

The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Marriage

Ruth A. Hawkins

the only biography of ernest hemingway’s 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 Hemingway’s writing,

Pauline became the source of “unbelievable happiness” for Hemingway

and, in 1927, his second wife.

Pauline was her husband’s 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 Hemingway’s 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 Hemingway’s four wives.

Unbelievable Happiness and Final Sorrow paints a full picture of Pauline

and the essential role she played in Ernest Hemingway’s becoming one of

America’s 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

teaching Myself to Sew

My father did the sewing in our house—

stripes on his uniform, loose buttons, kneepatches,

hems. After work or before,

he’d gather what was torn. Across

the kitchen table, I’d watch him ply

scissors and thread, a fine needle

between his thumb and thick fingers,

and I’d try to teach myself to sew—

worrying thread through a washrag, basting

uneven rows—but 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.

rousing the Machinery

Poems 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 family—motherhood and childhood, a

brother in prison, the loss of a child—MacDonald reminding us of the

inescapable ‘clanging together, the swinging apart, / what’s cleaved

and the whole,’ and finally that ‘Sanctuary—it 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 requires—as the thread

breaks and rejoins to remake what has gone before. MacDonald’s

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 book’s 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 MacDonald’s 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 Coal Life

Poems by Adam Vines

“Mined from linguistic, literary, and historical underworlds.”

“Adam Vines’s 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 rat’s nest of ‘chewed scripture and company

scrip.’ But in every poem, Adam Vines balances a tension perfect

as it is uneasy—between life’s ‘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 do—‘leaning to the light.’ The Coal Life

is remarkable—and necessary.”

—Claudia emerson, author of Figure Studies: Poems

“Adam Vines’s 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.

Poems 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

pages—interviews 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 America’s

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.

Collected Memories of Growing Up in Arkansas, 1890–1980

Margaret Jones Bolsterli

Like listening to stories from your grandparents

“Margaret Bolsterli’s 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 Bolsterli’s “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.

yazoo

Integration in a Deep-Southern Town

Willie 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 districts—whose speed

had been anything but deliberate—to 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 Yazoo’s 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 critique—and one of the richest accounts we have of a

community’s 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 Morris’s writing life by his

widow, JoAnne Prichard Morris.

Willie Morris (1934–1999) was the editor in chief of Harper’s 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 Thomas’s unique

perspective as both an academician and the grandson of the sawmill’s

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.

Vocalises

Poems 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.”

Deep Down in the Delta

Folktales 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 Toomer’s Cane and Alice Rae Yelen’s 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 Arkansas’s colorful past to find—and

“unvarnish”—some of the state’s 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.

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 University–Beebe and is the co-author, with Velma B.

Branscum Woody, of Homefront Arkansas: Arkansans Face Wartime, published by the

Butler Center in 2009.

hangin’ times in Fort Smith

A History of Executions in Judge Parker’s 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.

Daring to excel

The First 100 Years of Southwest Missouri State University

Edited by Donald D. Landon

More than a centennial celebration of Missouri’s 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 book’s 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.

“It’s 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 university’s regional impact and the numerous national headlines it has generated over

the years, Landon’s book deserves a wider readership. No one can be considered a serious student of

the Ozarks—or, for that matter, of public education in the American Midwest—without 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.

if they hadn’t gone

How World War II Affected Major League Baseball

By Thomas E. Allen

Foreword by Jerry Lumpe

If They Hadn’t Gone is an encyclopedia of biographical and statistical information covering 472 baseball

payers whose careers were affected by war. 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 Hadn’t Gone

comes to the front. The predictions . . . are sure to invoke a lot of discussion and comment. . . . If They

Hadn’t Gone is excellent reading for the true baseball fan.”

—Jerry Lumpe, from the foreword

tom e. allen is retired from Missouri State University, where he served for thirty-four years as vice

president of finance. A CPA, one-time semi-pro ballplayer, and member of the Society for American

Baseball Research, Allen spent years gathering the statistics and documentary evidence recorded in his

book. He is a die-hard Cardinals fan.

Jerry Lumpe is a Missourian, U.S. Army veteran, and former baseball All-Star who played second base

for the NY Yankees (1956–1959), Kansas City Athletics (1959–1963), and Detroit Tigers (1963–1967).

night of the grizzly

Poems by Michael Burns

Edited with an Afterword by Marcus Cafagña

Night of the Grizzly, Michael Burns’s last book, was a finished manuscript at the time of his passing and reflects an

incisive poet at the height of his powers. Burns has an ear for language as satisfying as Robert Frost’s and a knack for

storytelling Robert Penn Warren would envy. His deep image poems evoke primal experiences that take us beyond

the dulling influence of this life.

Twenty-one of the thirty-six poems printed here have appeared in such distinguished venues as The Paris Review,

The Southern Review, Western Humanities Review, The Laurel Review, and Moon City Review.

Michael Burns helped found the Creative Writing Program at Missouri State University, where he taught for twentyfive

years. A graduate of the University of Arkansas Creative Writing Program, he published two chapbooks, When All

Else Failed and And As for Darkness, and two books of poetry, The Secret Names and It Will Be All Right in the Morning.

He also edited two books of critical essays. Born June 3, 1953 in Egypt, Arkansas, Burns retired to Louisville,

Kentucky, where he passed away on October 27, 2011.

Marcus Cafagña is professor of English at Missouri State University, where he teaches creative writing. He has

authored two books of poetry: The Broken World (a National Poetry Series selection) and Roman Fever. His poems

have appeared in The Harvard Review, Ploughshares, Southern Poetry Review, and Quarterly West.

Blue Sabine

A Novel

Gerald Duff

Moon City press

Blue 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.”

gerald Duff grew up in the petro-chemical area of the Gulf Coast and the pine barrens of Deep East Texas. After

leaving Texas to study at the University of Illinois, he taught literature and writing at Vanderbilt University, Kenyon

College, and Johns Hopkins University. He has published twelve books, including a memoir and collections of poetry

and short stories. Blue Sabine is his seventh novel.

and Dale Carpenter. Bridge to War Eagle is a thirty-minute film about a wild stream, protected

Sacred Spaces

The Architecture of Fay Jones

Written and produced by Larry Foley and Dale Carpenter

DVDs

Fay Jones of Fayetteville, Arkansas, studied under the great Frank Lloyd Wright, and eventually

ascended to heights rivaling his master’s. Jones became one of the most acclaimed and significant

architects of the late twentieth century. He won the prestigious AIA Gold Medal in 1990,

awarded for a lifetime of work that included his masterpiece, Thorncrown Chapel, a “little glass

chapel” near the quaint village of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Thorncrown was recognized in 2000

by the AIA as the fourth most significant structure of the twentieth century. Sacred Spaces is a

one-hour documentary film produced by the Emmy Award–winning documentary film team of

Larry Foley and Dale Carpenter, both professors of journalism at the University of Arkansas, the

same school where Jones worked for much of his distinguished career as an academician and

practicing architect. Emmy Award–winner Kevin Croxton composed the musical score.

the Buffalo Flows

The Story of Our First National River

Written and produced by Larry Foley, photography by Trey Marley, edited by Dale Carpenter

Folk singer Jimmy Driftwood called the Buffalo River “Arkansas’s gift to the nation—America’s

gift to the world.” It was the first national river to be designated in the United States (1972). The

Buffalo Flows is a one-hour documentary film written and produced by two-time Emmy award–

winning filmmaker Larry Foley, professor of journalism at the University of Arkansas. Academy

Award–winner Ray McKinnon narrates.

Internationally known as an outstanding canoe stream, this 135-mile river, free of dams, is so

much more, and the film captures what is protected. The story is about the bluffs and the trees,

the flowers and the birds, and the giant elk. It’s about hiking and floating and camping and fishing.

And it’s also about the people who make their homes in Buffalo River country year round,

and have for generations.
