What is remarkable about this book is equally remarkable about his drama: he writes with an effortlessness that belies the intimacy of the art emanating from deep within. The stories are simply told but complex in their resonance. Foote not only reveals his immediate professional world but also provides a running commentary on the changes in American culture.
