"Madison Smartt Bell was born and raised near Nashville and attended Ensworth School and Montgomery Bell Academy before going to Princeton University, where he studied in the creative writing program, working with, among others, George Garrett and William Goyen. He has taught at a number of institutions including Johns Hopkins, the Iowa Writers Workshop, the Poetry Center at the Ninety-second Street YMHA, and Goucher College, where he was awarded the Chair of Distinguished Achievement in 1995. Among his other honors are the Lillian Smith Award (1989), Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and nominations as a finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award. He was named by Granta magazine as one of "the best American novelists under 40" in 1996. Bell is clearly a southern writer by inheritance and in his love for language, emphasis on storytelling, fondness for eccentric characters, and sense of the mysterious power of place. Although Bell has written both novels and stories set in the South, most of his work is placed elsewhere. Prolific, imaginative, brilliant, and compassionate, Bell has already created an impressive body of work by any standards and seems more than likely to become a major figure in contemporary American literature." - George Garrett. Third novel. "New York [is] the locale for most of his early work. In "Zero db," the title story of Bell's first story collection, a sound man in a bar on 14th Street ends the story by advising, into his recording device, "Listen. Listen. Listen. We can never be too attentive to our world." The two novels that preceded the book of stories, 'The Washington Square Ensemble' and ' Waiting for the End of the World', showed that Bell had already taken this advice. These two New York novels put a twenty-something Tennessean on the New York map. His characters represented everything about New York that scares (or used to scare) so many away: junkies, dealers, prostitutes, anarchists. At a time when 'Bright Lights, Big City' was getting an abundance of attention, Bell was writing about a world that didn't come and go in a decade, a night world that told the rest of the story. His characters, he says, "are the guys that would have been mugging McInerney's characters as they stumbled out of the Odeon at three in the morning." - Wyn Cooper. " 'Straight Cut' is narrated by its main character, the highly introspective Tracy Bateman, a melancholy film editor who frequently quotes Kierkegaard. While in Rome, editing a TV documentary, he is reunited with the beautiful Lauren, his estranged wife. The overpowering feature of 'Straight Cut' is its richly detailed first person narration which has the effect of making the reader privy to the nuances of Tracy's emotional state as he experiences this working "Roman holiday". About midway through, 'Straight Cut' turns, somewhat abruptly, into a story about the dark, nasty world of international drug smuggling. Tracy's deeply introspective narration continues through this part of the book, even as the novel's tone changes from slice of life to action adventure. In writing 'Straight Cut', author Madison Smartt Bell has created an artfully crafted work of fiction which ignores convention while daring to combine genres. Interesting and original." - Michael G. ., Ticknor & Fields, 1986
