This chapter discusses the time when Larry Brown signed a new two-book contract with the Free Press that included a 1 October 2004 deadline for submitting the first book. Brown spent most of the following year at home in Lafayette County, writing the novel he planned to call A Miracle of Catfish and finishing his cabin. Later in August, Silas House came to Oxford for a book signing and took the opportunity to visit with Brown. In early October, Brown took another major break from writing when his daughter, LeAnne, married James Bradley Bonds. Mary Annie went to great lengths to plan the wedding, and the affair plunged the Brown household into chaos. After the wedding, Brown immediately returned to his writing and construction projects.
