In interviews with fifteen contemporary writers of the American West, Gregory L. Morris demonstrates what these widely divergent talents have in common: they all redefine what it is to be a western writer. No longer enthralled (though sometimes inspired) by the literary traditions of openness, place, and rugged individualism, each of the writers has remained true to the demand for clarity, strength, and honesty, virtues sustained in their conversations. Morris talks with Ralph Beer, Mary Clearman Blew, Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, James Crumley, Ivan Doig, Gretel Ehrlich, Richard Ford, Molly Gloss, Ron Hansen, John Keeble, William Kittredge, David Long, Thomas McGuane, Amy Tan, and Douglas Unger. Their lives and fiction stretch from Montana to Texas, from ranches to universities, from sea level to mountain slopes.The approach is so different; in a story all of a sudden you have all of these things that youa#39;ve done, and then people come back and say this ... of identity, I know ita#39;s in the story but I dona#39;t know how to explain it, I dona#39;t know how to explain it from a sociological point of view. ... me and I start writing, and in the end it emerges perhaps as a story about identity, but I dona#39;t know that until the end of that process.
