Shorties (Recommended Eco-Fiction Novels, Rosanne Cash on Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and more)

Barkskins by Annie Proulx recommended eco-fiction novels.

Rosanne Cash wrote about Sister Rosetta Tharpe at the Oxford American.

"She traveled the world and left it scorched with her fearlessness and musical originality, inspired fierce devotion from an audience who thrilled to her enormous gifts and her personal excesses, and shook the celestial rafters with the force of her artistic character. She was also my dad’s favorite singer."
