Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few things will bring people together in south Louisiana quicker than stories, food, and festivals that have both. The poems in Jack Bedell's What Passes for Love show all that and a little lagniappe. From a midnight chari vari, to the Fete de la Roulaison (the Grinding Festival), to newlyweds making love in the cane field and fishing tales galore, Bedell writes about the many sides of Louisiana's Acadian culture and its people. Poem by poem, this collection builds an honest, evocative, and sensitive world of stories told by a writer with an obvious love of place.

About the Author

Born and raised in south Louisiana, JACK BEDELL earned his B.A. and M.A. degrees in English from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches. He also holds an M.F.A. in poetry from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville and a Ph.D. from the University of Louisiana–Lafayette. Bedell teaches composition, American literature, technical writing, and creative writing at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. His first full- length collection of poetry, At the Bonehouse, was selected by David Bottoms as winner of the 1997 Texas Review Poetry Prize. His poetry, reviews, and criticism have appeared in several journals, including Kansas Quarterly, Kentucky Poetry Review, Negative Capability, Yarrow, West Branch, Southern Humanities Review, and Critique.
