It's been a while since I read it, but I recall being similarly impressed
and recommending it to anyone who would listen to me. It's a stunning book.
I've read his others -- SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL and LIQUOR, GUNS AND AMMO --
but neither approaches the narrative power of NIGHT DOGS.
I don't know if he's writing anymore or not, but the long hiatus since
LIQUOR would suggest he is not (or is taking his time doing so). There is
mention in LIQUOR that he is/was working on a novel about horses (?!?) --
for me, that that book has not yet appeared is not a concern. I like Kent
Anderson...but I guess I dislike literary musings about the grace of horses
Ah, but we'll always have NIGHT DOGS...
