Motorcycles, Hamburgers, and Lines You Can't Forget
An Interview with Barry Hannah
by Robert L. Hall

He’s ‘just people’ (as the colloquialism goes.)  Only…he ain’t cheap.  No.  You have to invest yourself in order to read his short stories or one of his books.  Sometimes you may have to feel something, like emotions, or even become thoughtfully sensitive in trying to understand the lines he creates, which at times resemble dreams or music or poetry.  As to whether they can be appreciated—well, that is another matter entirely.  But nevertheless, it will cost you to read Hannah.
