    What did you love best about Art in America?

    It's funny, touching, sad, insightful ~ very captivating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Petey Myers, the Sheriff. A straight-forward guy who takes care of business in this crazy little town. I also loved Petey's partner, Reedy.

    All the books by Ron McLarty are excellent choices.

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Memory of Running to be better than the print version?

    Once I listened to the audio edition I bought the print version for my library.


    What does Ron McLarty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love that it was narrated by the author (who is also an actor, by the way).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because I wanted it to last. I have listened to this more than once. It's that good.


    Any additional comments?

    Once you read this book, you will want to read his other books. Also, I kept thinking this would make an excellent movie.
