This panel seeks to explore representations of mass atrocity, war, and civil strife in literature of French expression. There has been a wealth of cultural production around human-made catastrophes in global or neo/colonial contexts, wherein dire situations propelled and complicated by geographic or sectarian identities are recounted through an individual lens. Whether the author is speaking from the perspective of a witness or working through received memory, s/he must often contend with multiple conflicting interpretations proffered by various factions.
Frank Yerby, over the course of his literary career, published thirty-three books. Throughout his lifetime, he sold millions of copies of those books becoming a millionaire in the process. Even with these successes, Yerby remains a footnote in the histories of American literature. As such, we seek to organize a panel for the 2017 College Language Association in Columbia, Missouri, on Frank Yerby’s work and life.
