The home of Wal-Mart, the West Memphis Three fiasco, the Ozarks and Bill Clinton, Arkansas is literally right in the middle of things. I never had an easy time categorizing the place; to the South is Louisiana, while Texas looms to the west. Missouri is to the North and Tennessee is to the East. These four states have distinct cultural identities, and while these identities are largely the result of the prominence of a certain region, I at least know what to expect, even if only naively, in those states. Here, however, I’m going in blind.
