Barry Hannah passed away yesterday at his home in Oxford, Mississippi at the age of 67. He was the author of several novels and story collections including Geronimo Rex, which was nominated for the National Book Award, and High Lonesome, which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. LSU Press is honored to have one of his most outrageous novels, The Tennis Handsome, still in print as a part of our Voices of the South series. Our thoughts are with Barry's family. Southern Literature will never be the same.
