  • Claire Hamner Matturro Interviews Robert Bailey, Author of “Between Black and White” - Southern Literary Review
    literature Atticus Finch as your lead lawyer Harper Lee s gem inspired me and countless others to go to law school In fact I think every aspiring lawyer secretly wants to be Atticus Finch CHM You are a practicing attorney in Huntsville Alabama and a partner in the firm of Lanier Ford Having been a lawyer myself I know how all consuming the practice of law is especially trial work How ever do you find the time to write practice law and be a family man too RB I do most of my writing in the early morning hours while the kids are still asleep and before my work day as a lawyer begins This has become a habit for me no different from brushing teeth which has taken a lot of the stress out of it I write in the mornings and then I go about the rest of my day However during trial and preparation for trial I set aside the writing completely and focus only on the trial CHM How have your partners and other attorneys in Huntsville reacted to your success with The Professor RB Everyone has been universally supportive and happy for me I am blessed to be part of a law firm with a familial atmosphere where everyone gets along well and pulls for each other The legal community of Huntsville has also been very supportive helping me to promote my book CHM Renowned Alabama football Coach Paul Bear Bryant appears as a person in The Professor and as a legend and motivating force in Between Black and White Bocephus and Tom both played football for The Bear and both recall The Bear s words in times of stress and draw strength from his memory I gather then you re a huge fan of The Bear How has he influenced you And why do you think he remains such an iconic figure RB Growing up in Alabama as a child in the late 70 s and early 80 s I saw Coach Bryant almost as a religious figure I was inundated with stories of the Bear and his teams I joke at book clubs that my Batman and Superman growing up were Joe Namath and Lee Roy Jordan There is also the impact he had on his players One of the most gratifying parts of this journey for me was meeting and speaking with Lee Roy Jordan the great middle linebacker on Coach Bryant s 1961 National Championship team who makes a cameo in The Professor Lee Roy told me that there wasn t a day that goes by that he didn t think about Coach Bryant Not a single day So when writing the characters of Tom and Bo I wanted to show the impact Coach Bryant had on their lives too As for his continuing relevance and stature it is a testament to the Man as Tom and Bo refer to him that his shadow still looms so large When you think
