This novel becomes a dual road trip and picaresque adventure story as we follow the restless Minnie through her years as a prostitute in the old hotel on Cedar Key, to New York and back to Georgia and Florida, not seeking or fleeing, needing only movement, like the gypsy she is. She is not doomed to wander; she is free to wander.</p> Mon, 21 Feb 2011 18:12:00 +0000 Don Noble 1900 at http://apr.org The Last Queen of the Gypsies Coming of Age at the Y http://apr.org/post/coming-age-y <p>Cobb's novels since this first one have been either serious or, if comedies, dark ones, whereas Coming of Age at the Y is an effervescent, bubbly pleasure.</p> Mon, 06 Oct 2008 15:40:00 +0000 Don Noble 1679 at http://apr.org Coming of Age at the Y The Hermit King http://apr.org/post/hermit-king-0 <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-53cf15ca38201-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-53cf15ca38201-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="53cf15ca38201-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/national/local-national-673805.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>A collection of Cobb's "best stories," along with the reprinted novel set in a fictionalized Demopolis.</p> Tue, 27 Dec 2005 21:57:00 +0000 Don Noble 1617 at http://apr.org The Hermit King The Hermit King http://apr.org/post/hermit-king <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-53cf15ca33726-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-53cf15ca33726-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="53cf15ca33726-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/national/local-national-494021.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>A collection of Cobb's "best stories," along with the reprinted novel set in a fictionalized Demopolis.</p> Tue, 27 Dec 2005 16:21:00 +0000 Don Noble 1385 at http://apr.org The Hermit King
