Barry Hannah was born in Clinton, Mississippi in 1942. He took a B.A. from Mississippi College and a Master’s from the University of Arkansas. He taught creative writing at Clemson. He then taught briefly at Middlebury College in Vermont and then for five years at the University of Alabama. He worked in Hollywood writing scripts for Robert Altman.
