RARA-AVIS: Another short Crumley piece

From: Steve Miller ( readingbear@earthlink.net)
Date: 25 Nov 2000

The recent discussion about "Hot Springs" made me recall a short (5 pages) piece Crumley wrote for The Big Sky Journal, a quarterly semi-literary published out of Montana, and which has been anthologized in "The Big Sky Reader".

The essay is called "Charlie's Bar" and, as the title would suggest, is a paean to a favorite saloon in western MT. My favorite line, which I can almost hear in Milo's voice: "So after fourteen years of hanging out in the bar, I can only count six or eight moments of violence, and only two involving me."
