Speaking in this issue’s long-form interview with upstreet editor Vivian Dorsel, Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction writer Robert Olen Butler had this to say about the special problems the writer’s medium presents: "The medium for a writer is words, and the words make sounds, but those sounds are immediately overwhelmed by meaning. We are the only artists whose medium is not innately and irreducibly sensual, and yet, as artists, we try to create sensual objects from it. Our medium is constantly struggling with us, to drag us into our heads."

Southern Bound Book Shop in Biloxi is proud to be the only independent bookstore in our city. We specialize in used books published in the last few years, but we also carry old and more obscure titles. We love and appreciate the arts and creativity, and our goal is to foster that in our community. We also host events and appreciate anything old, upcycled, recycled, vintage, and just plain cool or weird. Come on in and pay us a visit.
