Richard Ford Joins Fiction Faculty @ #34 Ole Miss

Read the story at The Huffington Post, here. If I read this right, Ford fills the position formerly held by the late Barry Hannah.

Love Richard Ford, but not sure I could live in Mississippi for two years. Though, to be fair to Mississippi, I don't have much firsthand knowledge of the place.

Alright! I'm glad I applied there.

As a native Mississippian as well as a deeply liberal voter, I will gladly attest that Oxford is a great town — very progressive and literary-minded. In terms of amenities and excitement, of course it's no New York City, but neither is Missoula, Eugene, or Carbondale. It's a lovely place to live for three years, for anyone. Richard Ford will no doubt be a fabulous addition to the faculty. And anyone not applying to Ole Miss simply because it's in the South is really missing out.

As above... about the spoilers; yeese, does he want us to read it or not?
Anyhoo, this sounds great, but I will be waiting for the paperback, hopefully, my memory will been cluttered up by peripherals and all will be forgotten. To get more info just check out plagiarism checker.
