Madison Smartt Bell "as remarkable a historical novelist as we have in this country." Bell earned that assessment with his 1995 novel, "All Souls' Rising," the first in a trilogy of massive novels about the blood-soaked Haitian War of Independence (1791-1804). "All Souls' Rising" was a finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, and received the Anisfield-Wolf award for the best book of the year dealing with matters of race. In 1996, "Granta" named Bell one of the "Best American Novelists Under Forty." "It's a brilliant performance, the work of an accomplished novelist of peculiar energy and courage.... One puts down 'Master of the Crossroads' with a visceral knowledge of what it felt like to wage war in Haiti at the turn of the 19th century." - James Parini, "New York Times Book Review" Sunday Times Union Article

With a writers keen eye, a longtime residents familiarity, and his own sly wit, acclaimed novelist Madison Smartt Bell leads us on a walk through his adopted hometown of Baltimore, a city where crab cakes, Edgar Allan Poe, hair extensions, and John Waters movies somehow coexist. From its founding before the Revolutionary War to its place in popular culturethanks to seminal films like Barry Levinsons Diner, the television show Homicide, and bestselling books by George Pelecanos and Laura LippmanBaltimore is America, and in Charm City, Bell brings its story to vivid life. First revealing how Baltimore received some of its nicknamesincluding "Charm City"Bell sets off from his neighborhood of Cedarcroft and finds his way across the citys crossroads, joined periodically by a host of fellow Baltimoreans. Exploring Baltimores prominent role in history (it was here that Washington planned the battle of Yorktown and Francis Scott Key witnessed the "bombs bursting in air"), Bell takes us to such notable spots as the Inner Harbor and Federal Hill, as well as many of the undiscovered corners that give Baltimore its distinctive character. All the while, Charm City sheds deserved light onto a sometimes overlooked, occasionally eccentric, but always charming place.

September 25, 2005 The March
By E. L. Doctorow
Random House, 363 pp., $25.95 American political sensibility has evolved to the point that to understand just how unsympathetic a figure General William Tecumseh Sherman has been and can still be in some regions of this country, it is better to pass over his devastating march through the Deep South to the sea and consider instead his solution to the problem of hostile Plains Indians, a few years after the end of the American Civil War. Kill off the buffalo, Sherman advised, and Indian resistance will wither and blow away. That deed was done perhaps by coincidence but once white frontiersmen had hunted the vast herds of buffalo to the edge of extinction, the whole way of life of the Plains Indians had been destroyed. The warrior Sioux had been cut down at the knees by the time they wiped out Custer and the Seventh Cavalry, who just hadn't figured it out quite yet, at the Little Bighorn. Never mind the warriors, Sherman reasoned, but bring war to their wives and children and families by destroying their homes and food supplies (not to mention rape and other collateral atrocities). The warriors, severed from their destroyed roots, will lose all morale and finally give up. This radical and ruthless strategy worked as well in the heart of the Confederacy as it did later, on the great Western Plains.

  • Madison Smartt Bell 1957–
    American novelist and short story writer. The following entry presents an overview of Bell's career. For further information on his life and works, see CLC , Volume 41.
    In his novels and short stories Bell has depicted sordid, urban underworlds of drugs, violence, and weird pathologies. His fiction is usually set in New York City and peopled by uprooted Southerners, although the milieus of his later work have ranged from his native, rural American South to London and Haiti. Bell is sometimes connected to the Southern literary tradition because of his heritage and his concern with the sociological motivations of misfits and outcasts. While he has been faulted for using contrived literary devices, trendy subject matter, and occasionally flat characterizations, Bell possesses an imaginative depth, considerable narrative skills, and an evocative style uniquely his own. Andy Solomon has called Bell "one of our most prolific and precocious talents," adding that his "unique wedding of intelligence and craft to a signature angle of vision … marks him as one of our more courageous and large-souled talents as well."
    Biographical Information
    Born August 1, 1957, in Nashville, Tennessee, Bell was raised on his family's farm in Williamson County. He attended Princeton University, where he won several literary prizes for fiction writing and received a summa cum laude B.A. degree in English literature in 1979; he earned a master's degree from Hollins College in 1981. Employed by film and publishing enterprises during his college days, Bell read manuscript and wrote copy for Berkley Publishing Corporation in New York upon graduation from Hollins until 1983, when he published his first novel

This will give the grand blancs time to build political and military power, so that they can then deal with the petit blancs when the time comes. Of course they are totally confident that they can put the lid on the slave rebellion whenever they decide, as they have in the past.
