The people at LSU Press and The Southern Review represent everything that is good in the world of literary publication. Their dedication to esthetic quality has been the gold standard in literary publication for over seventy-five years. The Southern Review published my stories when few other literary journals would. LSU Press resurrected my career with the publication of my collection The Convict after I had been out of hardcover print for thirteen years. Then they published my novel The Last Get-Back Boogie after it had been under submission in New York for nine years and had received over 111 editorial rejections (after publication by LSU, it was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize).

My debt to both LSU Press and The Southern Review is one I can never repay. They are extraordinary people and I'm very proud to have my name associated with them.
