Barry Hannah, RIP

The fantastic Barry Hannah—author of Airships and Rayis dead.

Ray has long been one of my favorite novels. There was a time when I could quote from it at length. In the middle of tedious college reading, that little novel was always a reliable lifeboat back to real writing, living writing. And it was—is—a great cure for writer's block, as sure a sign as any that one has come across something alive.
