LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

thnic writing holds an important place in American literature. That doesn't mean it's always recognized. Nashville Scene's Lisa A. DuBois digs deep in "Mixing It Up." Metro Pulse's Jack Neely takes a pilgrimage through the Yellow Pages to explore the mysteries of his childhood in "I Am Curious."

Non-fiction carries the day with titles covering the paranormal, adventurous children, the life of columnist Jim Knipfel, and more in Mini-Reviews.
