About this title
Lana Sue has had too many husbands and too little success as a country-western singer. Loren Paul's a semi-successful writer presently sitting on top of a western Wyoming mountain waiting for Cosmic answers.
Together or apart, Loren Paul and Lana Sue are modern folk heroes on this deliciously ribald saga of the new Wild West-a spirited tale of love and loss, of country music and coming home.
"What propels Western Swing is a cheerfully unfashionable conviction that in spite of past mistakes, lost hopes, and emotional pain, these two people belong together." -New York Times Book Review
"The humor of Western Swing is the key to Tim Sandlin's memorable characters...a wonderful and satisfying experience." -Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Sandlin's is a book about running into the sun and keeping on, with humor, passion, and faith, no matter how you burn or mess up." -Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Tim Sandlin writes about crazy people. Not scary crazies, but the kind of interesting, funny eccentrics with whom the reader would like to spend an evening drinking beer...Western Swing is funny, wise and a bubbling joy to read." -Kansas City Star
"Ongoing life is what this book is all about...Sandlin's voice is a wry mix of cynicism and innocence. Add to that a well developed sense of the bizarre, and you have a book that's fun to read, brimming with high-spirited zaniness."-St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Reviewers have variously compared Tim Sandlin to Jack Kerouac, Tom Robbins, Larry McMurtry, John Irving, Kurt Vonnegut, and a few other writers you've probably heard of. He has published nine novels and a book of columns. He wrote eleven screenplays for hire, two of which have been made into movies. He lives with his family in Jackson, Wyoming, where he is director of the Jackson Hole Writers Conference. His "Sandlinistas" follow him at www.timsandlin.com.
