Don't Date Baptists covers Barr's life from his boyhood during the Civil Rights era to adulthood, touching on issues of family, race, religion, and the untimely deaths of loved ones and friends. Each of these essays helps the reader see the events and people who shaped Barr's views of the South and of himself. Lurking within are witches and crosses and old swimming pools.

His work has appeared in many online and print journals including Full Grown People, Vol 1 Brooklyn, Hippocampus, Eclectica, The Bitter Southerner, Wraparound South, Eyedrum Periodically, and Longshot Island Press.
