News and Notes
Willeford is probably best remembered for his Hoke Moseley novels, of which Miami Blues is the most widely known. Like that book, Cockfighter was made into a movie. Good luck finding it. The book is probably a bit easier to come by, although it's not currently in print. If you can get past the fact that it centers on a very unsavory "sport," then you'll find a story full of well-drawn characters and wicked plot twists.
