Melissa Ginsburg’s newest book is the novel, Sunset City (Ecco Press), a taut, erotically charged literary noir set in Houston about a woman caught up in her friend’s shocking murder, and the dark truths she uncovers. Ginsburg was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and attended the Iowa Writers Workshop. She is the author of the poetry collection, Dear Weather Ghost, and two poetry chapbooks, Arbor and Double Blind. She teaches creative writing and literature at the University of Mississippi. Sunset City is her first work of prose.

Jimbo’s latest CD is the nine-song EP, Band of Storms (Big Legal Mess) to be released on May 9. The album was recorded at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, not far from Mathus’ home in Taylor. Mathus, known nationally for his work with Buddy Guy and the Squirrel Nut Zippers (who are readying a series of comeback performances), meshes blues, country/gospel and his own brand of honky-tonk into what he calls, “you know, folk music.” Mathus’ most recent CDs include, Blue Healer and Dark Night of the Soul.

Andrew Bryant will perform this Thursday during the Thacker Mountain Radio Hour.
