One of My Favorite Authors: Brian Doyle

Last year I was listening to my local NPR station, and heard an interview with Brian Doyle. He was already a well-known essayist, but was now discussing his first novel, Mink River; a swatch of life and death and talking crows set in a fictional town on the Oregon Coast. I love how it blends modern social science with rural legend, Native American humor with old Irish seriousness (and the other way around). It’s spiritual, romantic, mystical and real-life-ish.

I hope Brian writes more novels, with or without talking crows.
