About the Author

Willie Morris (1934-1999), a native Mississippian, came to national prominence in the early 1960s as the youngest-ever editor of Harper's magazine. His first book, North Toward Home, became an instant classic. Among his other notable books are New York Days, My Dog Skip, The Courting of Marcus Dupree, and My Mississippi, the latter two published by University Press of Mississippi.

Reviews

"Poignant, funny, heartwarming and suspenseful...a deeply affecting swan song by one of America's most beloved writers." Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Willie Morris's great novel, his summation...Taps is a triumph throughout with some of his finest prose. From the very first lines, his hard-earned craftsmanship is evident...a work of art, Taps was written to last." The Los Angeles Times

"Pure quadruple-distilled Willie Morris...[and] quite magical... Morris paints a full and vivid and moving picture of what it was like to be sixteen in the Delta in the 1950s." Memphis Commercial Appeal

"Engaging...endearing..charming and old fashioned...Taps is a good reminder of what we have lost with Willie Morris's passing." The Washington Post --
