BOOK BIZ — Books are the perfect gifts this season

Really, is there any better holiday gift than a book? Well, maybe a large sum of money, but let’s not be crass. Readers are always thrilled to receive a new book and non-readers like to display coffee table books with lots of pretty photos. The University Press of Mississippi’s current catalog has something for everyone this gift-giving season. These titles are just a small sample of the variety that’s available.

Bright Fields: The Mastery of Marie Hull by Bruce Levingston (224 pages and 224 color illustrations; cloth cover, $50.00). She truly was a master as this book and the current show at the Mississippi Museum of Art confirm. There’s still time to see the exhibit if you haven’t seen it.

A Charlie Brown Religion: Exploring the Spiritual Life and Work of Charles M. Schulz by Stephen J. Lind (240 pages with photographs and line illustrations; cloth cover, $25.00). Fans of Schulz and the Peanuts gang are legion. More than a comic strip, the words and drawings express simple wisdom and an outlook on life. Some people called Schulz a fundamentalist; others called him an atheist. The truth may lie within the covers of this book.

Conversations with Barry Hannah, edited by James G. Thomas, Jr (240 pages; paperback, $25.00). Hannah is one of our own Mississippi authors who left this earth way too early. The language of his fiction sometimes shocked, but he is considered an important modern American writer.

America’s Great Storm: Leading through Hurricane Katrina by Haley Barbour with Jere Nash (256 pages with photographs and maps, cloth cover, $25.00). Putting “Leading” in the title was a perfect word choice. Gov. Barbour did just that during the dark days following this disaster. We only have to look to the state bordering us on the west to see the opposite of leadership.

Country Boys and Redneck Women: New Essays in Gender and Country Music, edited by Diane Pecknold and Kristine M. McCusker (304 pages with illustrations, tables and musical examples, paper back, $35.00 or printed case binding, $80.00). How about that title? I had to put this one on the list. Just as the Charlie Brown comic strip contained kernels of wisdom and philosophy, the lyrics of country music express some real down home observations of life. It’s intriguing.

Happy reading and Happy Holidays!
