Airships by Barry Hannah( Book )
24 editions published between 1978 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 856 libraries worldwide
Now considered a contemporary classic, Airships was honored by Esquire magazine with the Arnold Gingrich Short Fiction Award. The twenty stories in this collection are a fresh, exuberant celebration of the new American South-a land of high school band contests, where good old boys from Vicksurg are reunited in Vietnam and petty nostalgia and the constant pain of disappointed love prevail. Airships is a striking demonstration of Barry Hannah's mature and original talent

Bats out of hell by Barry Hannah( Book )
20 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 593 libraries worldwide
Love and torment, lunacy and desire, tenderness and war - the stories in Bats Out of Hell provide a brilliant, dazzling odyssey into American life. A man is possessed by the spirit of an eighteenth-century noblewoman every time he plays chess; a crippled boy yearns for brotherhood; dreaming and spinning lies to one another, a group of old men wait for death. No one but Barry Hannah could create this vivid world - and explore the nature of lust, captivity, and love in marriage. Barry Hannah's reputation as a master of the short story, first established in 1978 with the publication of Airships, is magnified in this volatile, long-awaited collection of new stories. Astonishing in range and in portrayal of the human heart, these fierce and radar-perfect stories give us individuals in whom hilarity and pain combine with true and startling clarity

The pleasure of influence : conversations with American male fiction writers by Rob Trucks( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
"In this collection of interviews, eleven of the most important American male fiction writers of our time - Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler, National Book Award winner Charles Johnson, National Book Award nominees Thom Jones, Barry Hannah, and Stephen Dixon, as well as Russell Banks, Rick Moody, Chris Offutt, Stewart O'Nan, Steve Erickson, and Gordon Lish - candidly discuss the origin, process, and achievement of their own fiction. All of the writers in this collection are working with personal truths, particular to their experience, yet they operate within a defined referential tradition. The material is unmistakably their own, the way they tell the story is their own, but they are always mindful of the world that preceded them."--Jacket

Mississippi power of place ( visu )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Mississippi has always been known for its rich literary and musical heritage even though it also has the highest illiteracy rate of any state. It's been the home of William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams, and Muddy Waters. Today, a new generation of artists is emerging from this place that some say embodies the best of American culture, despite poverty and social ills. Through the artists profiled in this film, Barry Hannah (writer), David Malone (blues musician), Lewis Nordan (writer), Donna Tartt (writer) and Morgan Freeman (actor), we see how the spirit of place inspires their creativity
