This spring, SMU Press celebrates a national honor and a new book in a series edited by an SMU faculty member. The Gateway, a collection of stories by T.M. McNally, was named one of the five finalists for the 2008 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. McNally will attend an awards ceremony May 10 at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC.
Anatomy of Baseball, a collection of personal essays on the sport, is edited by Andrew Blauner and Lee Gutkind and features a foreword by baseball legend Yogi Berra. The book is the latest title in the Press’s “Sport in American Life” series, which is edited by Law Professor C. Paul Rogers III.
