Anything Goes is the story Jesse, a twenty-something who passes his days touring with his band, crashing in moldy motel rooms, and meeting women with whom he admittedly wants nothing more than a one night stand. He manages to keep a safe distance from his abusive father. He drinks too much. He's happy with his life. All of a sudden it all begins to unravel. The tendonitis in his hands grows so bad that his fingers turn into "broken matchsticks," rendering him helpless to play the guitar. His father is suddenly back in his life, offering compassion and a gleaming, completely refurbished Mustang. Jesse wakes up with a strange woman in a motel room one morning and realizes he needs to make some changes in his life. "It occurred to me that maybe I didn't want to be doing this type of thing-from the belt up, anyway," Jesse acknowledges. "Like it was something I just let myself get maneuvered into, path of least resistance, don't you know." Madison Smartt Bell's reliable, tight prose permeates this novel, as do themes of race, class, and family. In this issue of Bold Type , listen to music composed by Madison Smartt Bell and poet Wyn Cooper, and read an essay by Bell on how this music inspired his novel.

I have known Madison Smartt Bell since shortly after the publication of his first novel, The Washington Square Ensemble, which I happened to use as required reading in my fiction writing class at Loyola College in Baltimore in the mid-eighties. A dozen books later, he's about to come out with the second volume of his trilogy covering Toussaint-Louverture and the Haitian Revolution. It's called Master of the Crossroads and is the subject of this interview, which was conducted via e-mail in three rounds. The following conversation is excerpted from questions sent from Bellagio, Italy, New York City and Cape Hatteras, North Carolina; with Madison's answers bouncing back from Baltimore, Maryland and Deer Isle, Maine, just after his recent return from Haiti.
The first volume of the Haitian trilogy, All Souls' Rising, begins with the slave meeting at Bois Caiman (where the first black revolutionary leaders were chosen in August 1791), and encompasses Toussaint's rise as leader through the great conflagration at Le Cap in June, 1793. Master of the Crossroads picks up in 1794 with adroit Toussaint's tenure as a world-class politician and perhaps the most progressive leader of his day. continued ABOUT CONTENTS CONTRIBUTORS ...

http://www.bombsite.com/bell/bell2.html
Madison Smartt Bell by Jack Stephens jack stephens You're not black, you're not French, you're certainly not Haitian. The subject of Toussaint-Louverture and the Haitian slave revolt is, therefore, someone else's story embedded in a cultural history far from your own. What drew you to it? What is the genesis of your fascination with the subject?
madison smartt bell
js What does this particular piece of history mean to you personally?
msb
js Otherness propels, familiarity reassures, right? In the historical novel readers really want both, to be refreshed and confirmed by what is other (exotic) and the same (universal) in our humanity. Can you talk about this both as a writer and reader of the genre?
msb
js Does this affect your hands-on research, archivally and in the field?
msb
js Your prose, especially in the highly interiorized works like Dr. Sleep, reads and is experienced like that kind of hypnagogic state where one falls into dream but is not quite asleep, as though in a trance, a stroll, sometimes backwards, through a vivid shadow world. This makes some sense considering that your preferred work habit, until All Souls', was to avoid revision. Then that changed, especially in regards to your working relationship with your editors Sonny Mehta and Cork Smith. How?
msb
js Did Master get the same editorial treatment? Did this change the form of your scriptorial meditation? Or did you slide back into the old groove?

About Madison Smartt Bell A Profile by Wyn Cooper
Ploughshares Winter 1999-00
When asked about the role of martial arts in his life, Madison Smartt Bell replies that it gave him the opportunity to be bad at something. To those of us who have followed his career as a writer, it's something of a relief to know that this might actually be true. In sixteen years he has published nine novels and two collections of stories to almost universal praise, in addition to writing essays and reviews for Harper's, The New York Times Book Review, The Village Voice, and many other publications. He has taught at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, the 92nd Street Y, the Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars, and Goucher College, and his students have included Carolyn Chute and Darcey Steinke. In addition to writing numerous screenplays from his own novels and those of others, he is also an accomplished musician and songwriter. Madison Bell was born in 1957 and raised on the family farm outside Nashville. His parents had gone to Vanderbilt and had been friends with Allen Tate and some of the other Fugitive poets. Bell's mother taught him how to read when he was four, and he began having an image of himself as an author "when I was not as tall as the table." "By the time I was seven," he says, "I thought the writer was the most powerful person in the universethat's what I wanted to be." He went to a grade school that encouraged creative writing, and a high school that didn't. Near the end of his senior year, he had a spontaneously collapsed lung and was offered the choice of surgery or staying in bed for a couple of weeks to see if the lung would mend on its own, which it did. "Out of ennui," he says with a laugh, "I wrote my first real short story."

Interview with madison smartt bell This interview was authored by JustinCronin and appeared in the Spring Issue of Four Quarters.
http://www.webdelsol.com/msbell/msb-view.htm
Interview with Madison Smartt Bell
Still in his thirties, novelist and short story writer Madison Smartt Bell has won a following among readers of serious literature that any author would envy. In the twelve years since the publication of his first novel , The Washington Square Ensemble (1983), Bell has published not one or two but six more, and a pair of story collections besides, all to wide acclaim. His work has appeared frequently in such publications as The Atlantic Monthly Harper's Magazine , and the annual Best American Short Stories anthologies, and among the many honors he's received are fellowships from both the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. In the midst of this, he manages-somehow-to teach, at Goucher College in Baltimore, where he lives with his wife, the poet Elizabeth Spires, and their young daughter. Intellectually rich, tautly crafted, ambitious in scope and form, Madison Bell's fiction sets him apart from the vast majority of writers of his generation, weaned on the spare prose, buried emotions, and implied plots of the Minimalists. A rural Southerner by birth but an urban Easterner by habit, Bell brings to his work the rhythms and sensibilities of both regions, making a literature that, as novelist and critic Anne Bernays has written, "loves people and things the way they are while simultaneously expressing outrage that they are not better, wiser, kinder." Everywhere in Bell's work the reader finds extraordinary combinations, dramatic turns, and a bottomless appetite for story. In his last three novels alone, he has covered considerable territory.

Bell's intricately plotted historical novel about the slave revolt in Haiti is as electrifying in intensity as it is grand in scope. Bell examines the byzantine politics of race, the spiraling of violence, and the pitched battle between one's conscience and one's culture with great verve, imagination, and insight. Camus, Albert
