Jim W.Corder on Living and Dying in West Texas: A Postmodern Scrapbook

Jim W. Corder will be remembered by students and colleagues at Texas Christian University for his writing, teaching, and original thinking. He was one of the most influential composition specialists of his generation - his Handbook of Rhetoric went through numerous editions, becoming a classroom staple nationwide - yet he gave his final years to the 'fourth genre' of creative nonfiction. His numerous publications include Lost in West Texas (1988), Chronicle of a Small Town (1989), and Yonder: Life on the Far Side of Change (1992).
