Episode Thirteen – Chris La Tray and Rick DeMarinis
In this episode, we discuss two books from Missoula writers. Chris La Tray’s book One Sentence Journal won this year’s Montana Book Award, and it’s an interesting collection of vignettes, and aphorisms that take you deep into the heart of a man who is searching for his place in Montana.
We believe the second book is one of the most overlooked novels in Montana history, but long-time Missoula resident Rick DeMarinis. DeMarinis published many novels, but The Burning Women of Far Cry was his best, and it was recently republished by Drumlummon Institute in hopes of giving it the following it so richly deserves.
