Latter-Day Crews

The latest issue of the Georgia Review is dedicated to Harry Crews, who is 73 and still writing in Gainesville, Florida. Despite his ill health, he comes off as pugnacious as ever in an interview with the Gainesville Sun, discussing whether he’ll finish his memoirs:

“Can I get it done before that? I don’t know. I think not,” he says. “But I can leave instructions: If there’s not a note here saying it’s fine to publish, then don’t do it. Will they honor that? Well, they haven’t honored anything else, so they probably won’t honor that either. I don’t know.”

The online edition of the Georgia Review has a brief excerpt (PDF) of the memoir.
