Author: William Cobb

William Cobb has published seven volumes of fiction and has won Alabama's Harper Lee Award for Distinguished Fiction. 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.

Coming of Age at the Y

Oct 6, 2008

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.

The Hermit King

Dec 27, 2005

A collection of Cobb's "best stories," along with the reprinted novel set in a fictionalized Demopolis.

Bill Cobb, along with Albert Murray, Helen Norris, Elise Sanguinetti, Harper Lee, Madison Jones, and H. E. Francis, is now one of the senior citizens of Alabama fiction.

He now has such a reputation that his early, out-of-print work is being put back into print for contemporary readers.
