Anthony E. Walton was born in 1960 in Aurora, Illinois. He studied at Notre Dame and Brown University. He is professor and writer-in-residence at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.
While he has not lived for any length of time in Mississippi, his parents were born and grew up in Mississippi and his non-fiction work, Mississippi: An American Journey is part memoir, part history, and part travelogue as he returns repeatedly to Mississippi, the home of his parents and relatives to learn more about life in Mississippi.
In his book, he includes stories of plantation owners, sharecroppers, rednecks, and martyred civil rights workers, Mississippi novelists like Ellen Douglas, and bluesmen, as well as poems he wrote. Walton’s work has appeared in many publications including The New Yorker, Kenyon Review, Oxford American, and Rainbow Darkness.
