AOT #259: Jonathan Evison Podcasts West of Here
Jonathan Evison reads from and discusses his new novel West of Here, which has been chosen as a Tattered Cover V.I.B. (very impressive book) by the Tattered Cover’s staff. An exposition on the effects of time, on how something said or done in one generation keeps echoing through all the years that follow, and how mistakes keep happening and people keep on trying to be strong and brave and, most important, just and right, West of Here harks back to the work of such masters of Americana as Bret Harte, Edna Ferber, and Larry McMurtry. Writers whose fiction turned history into myth and myth into a nation’s shared experience. It is a bold novel by a writer destined to become a major force in American literature.
