j i read true grit a year or so and vowed to read everything portis ever wrote (which is pretty easy since that amounts to four books). i need to get on that.

David Five books! But I'm going to read them all too. They're like delicious desserts. Or something.

j i meant four more books. (actually i did not, i have somehow never noticed gringos before.)

David Rickert Whatever happened to Portis?


message 8: by Msmurphybylaw (new)

Msmurphybylaw I believe he is a hermit somewhere in Mexico.

Melki I love your description of Dupree - a wannabe leftist radical who is really just an Arkansas redneck with authority issues.

Jeff Tucker This is my favorite Charles Portis book. You absolutely nailed it with this review. You managed to put into words some of the qualities that I liked so much about the story. Excellent, insightful review.

Carrie Ditto what Jeff said. And writing the whole review in Midge's voice? Brilliant!

Jane Mettee I haven't finished it yet but I find it hilarious. I am listening to it and the reader reports these events in an understated monotone that makes it even funnier. I also hated Hangover. Loved Confederacy of Dunces.
