Mark Spragg: Bone Fire
Ishawooa, Wyoming, is again the setting for the story. Einar Gilkyson, now in his eighties, is miffed at his granddaughter, Griff, for quitting college to come home to take care of him. In one scene, he spends most of a day climbing a hill and digging a hole where he then burns his marriage certificate and other papers and mementos, things that prove he was alive. Most people try to preserve a legacy, but Einar seems determined to rid the earth of evidence of his existence.
Find out why and hear Spragg talk about writing and his new novel on The Write Question Thursday evening, May 20, at 6:30 (Yellowstone Public Radio) or 7:30 (Montana Public Radio). Or listen online.
