The Write Question

Thursdays, 6:30pm

Program Website: http://mtpr.org/term/write-question-0

The Write Question is a weekly, half-hour program that explores writing and publishing in the Western United States. Chérie Newman, a producer with Montana Public Radio, interviews writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. And, occasionally, a publisher or editor. The program includes readings and information about the publishing process. The Write Question receives funding from Humanities Montana and the Montana Cultural Trust.

Alexandra Fuller

In her fourth nonfiction book, Cocktail Hour under the Tree of Forgetfulness, Alexandra Fuller braids a multi-layered narrative around the perfectly lit, Happy Valley-era Africa of her mother's childhood; the emotionally frozen landscape of her father's English childhood; and the darker, civil war-torn Africa of her own childhood. At its heart, this is the story of Fuller's mother, Nicola. Born on the Scottish Isle of Skye and raised in Kenya, Nicola holds dear the kinds of values most likely to get you hurt or killed in Africa: loyalty to blood, passion for land, and a holy belief in the restorative power of all animals. A story of survival and madness, love and war, loyalty and forgiveness, Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness is an intimate exploration of the author's family.

April 17
Walter Kirn

In his journalistic memoir Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade, Walter Kirn tells how, in the summer of 1998, he set out on a peculiar, fateful errand: to personally deliver a crippled hunting dog from his home in Montana to the New York apartment of one Clark Rockefeller, a secretive young banker and art collector who had adopted the dog over the Internet. Thus began a fifteen-year relationship that drew Kirn deep into the fun-house world of an outlandish, eccentric son of privilege who ultimately would be unmasked as a brazen serial impostor, child kidnapper, and brutal murderer.

April 24
Paul Zarzyski

For the first time, Paul Zarzyski’s most popular “lite” poems are collected together under one cover titled Steering With My Knees. From “Whale in my Wallet” to “Benny Reynolds,” “Tumbleweed Munchies” to “Long Sagebrush Drives,” nothing entertains and provokes, amuses and inspires, quite like the king of the poet lariati. In addition to a hand-picked selection of previously-published work, Steering with my Knees also includes more than thirty never-before-seen original poems.
