The Yarbrough's are some of the original folks that came From England to South Carolina to Missisippi to Tennesee, just before Oklahoma became a state. They were land owners that were forced to sell and move to Oklahoma with their slaves.

The Oxygen Man (to be published, screen play is currently being written)

Mr. Yarbrough grew up in Indianola, Mississippi. He is a graduate of the University of Mississippi, where he earned both a BA and an MA in Literature. He earned his MFA at the University of Arkansas. His stories have appeared in The Oxford American, The Hudson Review, and The Southern Review and in three collections, Family Men, Mississippi History, and Veneer. His first novel, The Oxygen Man, has just been released by MacMurray & Beck.

Mr. Yarbrough's debut novel, The Oxygen Man, is a story of retribution and reconciliation in the Mississippi Delta. The story centers on Ned Rose and his sister, Daze, whose lives are scarred by a series of disappointments. As the story progresses, though, it becomes quite clear that more than disappointment marks their lives, that metaphorically both Ned and Daze are suffocating. When they each realize they have another chance for deliverance, the novel turns dramatically and reaches the deepest veins of the heart.

The Oxygen Man confirms what Yarbrough's story collections have long heralded?that Steve Yarbrough is an important new writer and Southern voice. Trade reviews of the novel are very enthusiastic. Kirkus starred their review, saying the novel was "superb," and Publishers Weekly called it "extremely tender." Booklist will also star their April 15th review. The book is now available nationwide.

I ride a 1998 Kawasaki Concours that I purchased in March, 2000. I started riding about 25 years ago, when I was a young 25. (My how time flies!) I had been pretty much "bikeless" for about four years before getting my Concours... Steve Yarbrough, Arlington, Texas
