I have Whores (although I can't lay my hands on it right now, it's somewhere around here...), and I don't think there's such an essay in there. I don't know MUDDY FORK, is it a reprint of Whores? Alternate title w/ different contents? Or maybe I'm wrong about Whores--the memory will do that to you.

In any case, I'd also like to toss out the question: hasn't Crumley mentioned he was influenced by the poet Richard Hugo as well (whom, I believe, taught at Iowa for awhile)? Any comments on this connection?
