Thomas McGuane, Driving on the Rim
Tom McGuane has a wicked sense of humor. And he knows how to make accessible stories from words like "fulminate" and "divagation" and "sangfroid." He's written nine novels, three works of nonfiction, two collections of stories, and several screenplays, including “Rancho Deluxe” and “Tom Horn.”
McGuane’s new book is a darkly humorous picaresque novel titled, Driving On The Rim.
Find out which story-telling family members were role models for young Tom, why he cut his successful screenplay-writing career short, and who was responsible for the influx of writers to southwest Montana.
Hear all that, plus a conversation about Driving on the Rim, during The Write Question, Thursday evening at 6:30 (YPRadio.org) or 7:30 (MTPR.org).
