(p.196) Chapter Twelve A Return to Nonfiction
Larry Brown

This chapter describes the time when Larry Brown began planning the publication of a collection of his short writings, both fiction and nonfiction, over the past seven years. Mary Annie Brown sent Ravenel a number of stories and articles on 26 August, and Ravenel told Brown that after reading the pieces, she believed that a nonfiction collection highlighting “Larry’s life in Mississippi now” would work best. Brown agreed with Ravenel’s proposal and, by October, he had signed a contract with Algonquin/Workman for the collection. Work on the collection proceeded slowly over the next few months, as Brown found his time consumed by his promotional efforts on behalf of Fay, work on his cabin, and other personal matters.
