Carolyn Chute & No-Wing Militia
December 17, 2011
Carolyn Chute is peeking out of the forest. Probably because her huge new book just came out. (She says the manuscript was 2600 pages.) Here are links to stories from the reporters she let in the house and yard. They have different angles and all are worth reading.
Catch that her hubby is illiterate. Whoa, is right!
In the "Time" story notice how she fared at her free market "pay to play" local hospital.
All hail the no-wing!
(The movie of her "Beans" is oddly not available anywhere in our huge MEL system, which has everything. We rented it way back when (94) on VHS, in shock, because it was titled "Forbidden Choices." It was pretty cool. I see Amazon has a used one for $10.)
If you haven't read her 1980's classic "The Beans of Egypt, Maine," it's worthwhile. I also just read a blurb saying that listening to the book on tape is EVEN BETTER due to the Maine accents of the readers bringing the book to scary life.
Check all the editions out at: http://www.amazon.com/Beans-Egypt-Maine-Finished-Version/dp/0156001888/jeffpottersoutyoA/ (if you click then shop, OYB gets a cut -- thanks!)
The Chutes. (Carolyn likes her AK-47 because it's "so gentle.")
