Bob Edwards interviewed author, fly fisher and cutting horse devotee Thomas McGuane on XMRadio on his January 31 show. Even if you don’t have XMRadio, you can listen to a portion (and purchase the rest) of the podcast on ITunes (just go to “Podcasts” and search for McGuane), or you can buy it from Audible.com for $2.95. In the interview McGuane talks about the eastern literary establishment, writers who live in “flyover country,” and how getting bitten by a rattlesnake feels like getting whacked with a stick.
You can also read samples of McGuane’s writing on MidCurrent: “The Longest Silence” and “Foundationless Opinions” are examples of what Nick Lyons has said is some of the best fishing literature ever written.
