Audio Interview with Barry Hannah
William Styron described this Mississippi native as "one of the most consistently exciting writers of the post-Faulkner generation." Barry Hannah, author of Captain Maximus, Geronimo Rex, Hey Jack!, and High Lonesome, is a recipient of the Robert Penn Warren Lifetime Achievement Award in Fiction and the Faulkner Foundation Award.
He talks about growing up in the South, the beautiful and honest people he loves meeting as a writer and about his excitement about working with his favorite magazine, Esquire, and about winning his first award.

Fiction writers are accomplished liars and thieves. Barry Hannah, the epitomy of accomplished fiction writers, reads his short stories, "Water Liars" and "That's True" and the prologue of his novel, Yonder Stands Your Orphan, at the 2001 Ohio University Spring Literary Festival. In this second reading at the festival, Hannah reads his essay, "Why I Write."
For over a decade, many of the best writers of the English language found their way onto Don Swaim's daily two-minute CBS Radio show, Book Beat. His New York-based program was derived from longer interviews, sometimes 40-minutes in length. Found exclusively here, Wired for Books proudly webcasts these conversations in their entirety using RealAudio.
