Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Profile Information

Reading Preference:
Poetry (especially of the clear, musical variety without too many personal pronouns but with personal quirks). Fiction, especially speculative fiction (sf/f), low Modernism (mid-twentieth century popular novels), some kinds of mysteries. Nonfiction, especially related to science and nature.
Sylvia Townsend Warner's Lolly Willowes. J.R. Salamanca's Embarkation. Ursula Le Guin's Always Coming Home. Poetry...well, too numerous to start enumerating.
I direct the English education program at Western Carolina University; if you want to be an English teacher, drop me an e-mail. My writing life has included some academic work, an ill-fated novel, and some poetry. You're most likely to see the latter, if you want to, in a book of poems from LSU in 2006, The Memory of Gills, which won the 2007 Roanoke-Chowan Award from the NC Literary and Historical Association (thank you, NCLHA!) It was reviewed last summer in NCLR (thanks, Margaret!), and last fall in APR (thanks, Keith!) Poems have also appeared on the North Carolina poet laureate's blog (thanks, Kay!) Right now, summer 2009, I'm writing assessment reports and reading more poetry than I have in some while.

My review of The Memory of Gills is on my blog now. ( It may be a month before Smoky Mountain News publishes the review, but they will.

Let me know when "The Swam;p Monster" is out, and I am still going to review "The Memory of Gills" as soon as I catch up. I have a new play that I would love to get your reaction to.

I want to write a review of "The Memory of Gills" for the Smoky Mountain News. It will probably be a good while before they will publish it ... maybe a month.

My thing used to be Sunday mornings--I'd bake bread and catch up on correspondence. Then I started working on Sunday afternoons and that kind of shot Sunday mornings. I somehow never got back to the written corresponsence, which I love. I have a friend in grad school in NY and we've been attempting to write letters, not terribly successfully.

I wonder if we'll be any better at keeping in touch this way? The youngsters tell me it's all the rage and you know how important I think it is to remain forever young, don't you?

Good Thanksgiving?
