MEDIA REVIEWS
In Remembering, the editor [Lisa C. Hickman] presents one hundred pages of Williams skillful prose as a celebration and recognition of a remarkable writer who dedicated more than fifty years of her life to a craft she considered a life s process that entailed a lonesomeness of spirit. With their frankness about challenges facing grandparents and retirees (from exhaustion and hip-replacement surgery to haunting memories and a loss of libido), these late stories should attract new readers to Joan Williams. Joan Wylie Hall, The Southern Register

Hickman s book is a valuable collector s item for all scholars and dedicated readers interested in literature by native sons and daughters of the South. The Pirate s Alley Faulkner Society

Praise for Joan Williams
Joan Williams comes home again in this fifth novel, Pay the Piper, with familiar Southern themes of sorrow, change and renewal. She puts on the head of a pin here a saga of passion and of trust and hope and dreams consumed in flames of living hell. William Boozer, Nashville Banner

Old Powder Man is the kind of traditional novel that affirms the intrinsic dignity and worth of the novel. . . . Its mode is naturalistic in the highest sense of that word; there is nothing that is just statistical as in some American naturalists, but all detail is necessary and illuminating. One thinks of Flaubert, and this is the highest kind of praise. Joyce Carol Oates, Detroit Free Press

The Wintering tells a poignant and unusual story of the love between a world-famous writer and a young girl who comes to pay him homage. Miss Williams has brought off the story of uneven love with extraordinary skill. There is nothing maudlin or cheap about the way she handles her story. Nothing is varnished, nothing is prettied up. Bonita Sparrow, The Commercial Appeal (Memphis)
