Our Price: $5.95

The Oxford American is proud to release its 84th issue, which celebrates writing and art by both well-known contributors and emerging talents.

A few highlights: Steve Featherstone goes hunting for pythons in the Everglades; Jamie Quatro reflects upon the intimacy of Flannery O'Connor's prayer journal; Rachel Monroe interviews Bryce Reed about the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas; William Giraldi pays tribute to Elizabeth Spencer; Kate Sweeney attends a burial at sea; Mark Lane remembers a painful accident from childhood; and new fiction from National Book Foundation "5 Under 35" recipient C.E. Morgan.

Local Fare columnist John T. Edge, the director of the Southern Foodways Alliance, tells us why potlikker "is now vogue". And in a new installment of Cooking with Chris, contributing editor Chris Offutt shares an unforgettable story about eggs.

The OA's recent Tennessee Music Issue was one of the highest-selling music issues in the magazine's history. Now, readers looking for more great music writing will love "Spinning Steel Into Gold", Ginger Dellenbaughs' lovely meditation on the pedal steel guitar, and "Visions of Coahoma," in which Grammy nominee (and Lomax archive curator) Nathan Salsburg journeys to Texas Island, Mississippi.

In addition to excellent writing, the Oxford American's Spring Issue features more than twenty artists and photographers, including Maude Schuyler Clay's stunning portraits of dogs in the Mississippi Delta.
Our Price: $15.00
