Book Talk: A true blue Western
When was the last time you read a real honest-to-goodness western? Have you read the covers off your favorite Louis L’Amour, Max Brand and Zane Grey? Maybe you read Charles Portis’ “True Grit” during all the movie hoopla and crave more of the same.
I picked up Patrick DeWitt’s “The Sisters Brothers” at Square Books in Oxford last week and absolutely love the western. Funny thing, from the title I thought the storyline might be about Mormons or Catholic nuns.
