A New Collection of John William Corrington's Writings, Edited by Allen Mendenhall @allenmendenhall @UnivPressNG

Newly published: The Southern Philosopher: Collected Essays of John William Corrington (Allen Mendenhall, ed., University of North Georgia Press, 2017).

John William Corrington was an English professor (D. Phil, University of Sussex) and lawyer (Tulane Law) who became known as a writer of screenplays and poetry. With his wife Joyce, he wrote for such daytime dramas as Search for Tomorrow and General Hospital. The couple also wrote the screenplays for the films The Omega Man and Battle for the Planet for the Apes, among other films.

Professor Mendenhall's new book highlights Professor Corrington's writings on literature, law, and society.

Here's a link to an interview with Professor Mendenhall on his research for the book.

Here's Richard Bishirjian's review of the new collection from Anamnesis.
