Still Wild: Short Fiction of the American West 1950 to the Present by Larry McMurtry

Still Wild, Larry McMurtry, the preeminent chronicler of the American West, celebrates the best of contemporary Western short fiction, introducing a stellar collection of twenty stories that represent, in various ways, the coming of age of the American frontier. <P> Featuring a veritable Whos Who of the centurys most distinctive writers, from Richard Ford, William H. Gass, and Raymond Carver to Leslie Marmon Silko, Louise Erdrich, and Annie Proulx, this collection effectively departs from the standard superstars of the Western genre. McMurtry has chosen a refreshing range of work that, when taken together, depicts the evolution and maturation of Western writing over several decades. Instead of the oft-anthologized adventures of Zane Grey, readers of Still Wild will encounter Jack Kerouacs extended love letter to Los Angeles, in The Mexican Girl, and Wallace Stegners haunting Buglesong, with its disturbing evocation of the cruelty lurking beneath the Wests beautiful landscape. <P> The tales featured are not so concerned with the American West of history and geography as they are with the American West of the imagination
