"Oxford American" Takes on Southern Sports


The distinguished Southern arts and literary journal, Oxford American, has just published its latest issue. This time around, they're taking a look at Southern sports.

They've broken out the baseball poems and meditations on such pastimes as horseracing, cockfighting, stadium food, fly fishing, cheerleaders, relic hunting, chess, boxing, hunting dogs, underdogs, and show dogs.

Plus, there's a selection of James Perry Walker's 1970s Memphis portraits; fiction from M.O. Walsh, Mark Edmundson, and Mary Miller; and poems from Beth Ann Fennelly, Robert Parham, Brooks Haxton, and John Updike.
