A.O. Scott on the Work of Wallace Stegner
"Were some of those big questions that stagner wrestled with in his writing the segments such a fascinating writer for one thing, and I don't really get into into the peace, but he really spans generate. I don't think there are that. Many writers who cover quite the same amount of time as he does, so he he's born in nineteen o nine and grew up in various places around the western United States to Seattle Salt. Lake City not just the United States schedule on, but he started writing in the thirties is first. Four novels were published in the thirties and kept writing and kept going up until his death in. In nineteen ninety-three, the big novels that people tend to read the to that that are probably the most red angle of repose and crossing to safety are from the seventies and eighties. And he already had you know four or five decade career behind him. At that point, you know it's almost a cliche to think of him as a Western writer because he taught at Stanford for many years, he founded the creative writing program. At Stanford, the creative writing fellowships still bear his name there. A lot of his nonfiction is about the West about ecology about the settlement of the West. He wrote a really fascinating book in the forties called Mormon country about Utah Settlement Utah. Conflicts between Mormon and Non Mormon? Population and native Americans there, so the West is kind of his big theme, but it's always in opposition to the Western as we think been in movies or in popular Western literature sort of the mythology the west so. The whole idea of cowboys and railroad man. Rugged individualists, the whole myth of. Western expansion Western settlement something that he's always looking at from a very critical angle. When we think about this idea of like the great American writer and the Great American novel, which is probably all just a false notion, while the feels like in many people's minds like a terrible. Oh, that people know of Wallenstein. They, know the title usually angle of repose and crossing to safety both books that sold very well as in addition to being critical success says. But he's not one of those people that's on the curriculum. For example you said in your essay that he's the writer that you come across on shelves of books where you like you rent a cabin for the summer, and there are inevitably a copy or two of worn paperbacks of his novels, and and and that's the way I came across stagner. What is his reputation in the country? Did he get the recognition that he deserved I think in his lifetime. He was pretty well. We won or was a finalist for most of the major awards Pulitzer in the National Book Award, and he he was a very powerful and important figure in the world of creative writing. I mean the the the list of his students you know includes Berry. Edward Abbey Tillie Olsen Robert Stone Larry. mcmurtry Ken Casey so the people who pass through Stanford and were stagner fellows. There is part of legacy in American writing. Kind of off to the side of whether people are still reading his books, but but I think there is this interesting status where it's not that he's obscure, forgotten neglected, but he's feels a little bit. Marginal to me a little bit, maybe unassimilated.

Right because otherwise, you you can't just shade. Where hat you need to wear like a hat with two bills. Right. One on top one of the him. It's coming from all directions, and you need to use your hands for other things an individual would need to to hunt or fish or craft etc. You can't just go around with your hands up all the time. When I when I think about the challenges of dealing with sunlight, I'm I'm always forced to just think about how mazing our eyelids are though for manipulating light will enter irises, of course, mayor pupils contract when there's too much light. But there's a point at which they can't contract anymore and you have to depend on the eyelids. When one example, I always go to there's a character in Larry mcmurtry novel Comanche moon, and he he winds up tortured by bandit flares, and they they slice his eyelids off. Oh, no leave him for for dead in the sun. And he's you know, half driven mad by the whole ordeal. But sick eyelids. Oh, yeah. It is a it is a sick weird book. I love it. It's my favorite mcmurtry book. But afterwards this character ends up constructing a pair of special sunglasses for himself with these varying varying levels. Of darkness. So that he can just click through them as he needs some depending on where he is of us, you know, indoors outdoors bright day, you know, a cloudy day at cetera. But I've I always come back to that. Because it's like you have you had to recreate the functionality of your eyelids. What kind of invention would you have to have to build you got so many parts of your body that you really don't appreciate? But would if they were gone, right? But enough about Larry mcmurtry, cyborg westerns. Let's let's just get down to sunglasses. What was what is essential to a modern pair of sunglasses? What do you what do you need is? We're sort of deconstructing the the invention. Well, you need a frame to hold them over the is and you need lenses that will in one way or another filter, the incoming light. They obviously can't be completely opaque you need to be able to see through them. But they also need to stop some amount of bad stuff from getting in. Right. So like from uninterrupted level. It seems pretty straightforward. You know, glass itself. Is rather old invention? We could we can re revisit glass at some point a future episode. But it you find examples of this. Ancient miss Batavia, certainly crystals and other substances were were known to ancient people. So just the materials of say building something out of six we can all imagine the sort of Flintstones style spectacles or sunglasses that one could conceivably have. But invention is always about that moment where someone actually puts materials together and increased something that has not existed before. So we're forced to just two task that question will wear. Do. We really see the earliest indications of dole to a certain extent spectacles, we can't talk about sunglasses without talking about spectacles a little bit. But we're mostly concerned with sunglasses in this episode because they look cooler right focusing lenses that that's a story for another time. Yeah. I think we're dealing with a somewhat simpler story right now. Yes. Even though sunglasses might not have become extremely popular. Around the world until after spectacles were widely used, but it's really too bad. Because they're they're they're sunglasses efficiently. Our modern usage of them. They're they're they're really important. They really protect us. We'll think about the sunglasses he wears a kind of radiation suit for your eyes think on that one for a second try try to actually cognizance the fact that good old fashioned sunlight is literally radiation from a star. That's a phrase that always echoes in my mind when it's really beaten down on my head men, a good pair of sunglasses should do multiple things. Right. They should decrease the intensity of the light reaching your eyes. So if it's a bright shining day or there's glare off of water off of.

I was a crap kid. A friend of mine dad rented it, and it was like trying to watch it for himself and sleeping over my friend. His dad, his dad was dead bought the house, but like I was probably like eight when that movie came out, it was a new release when when when. Yeah. And I talked the whole time did a plunge of bits. Aliens. Yeah, I was so cute. Men if I were like they giant now, trying to like aliens just came out on like finally, the VHS Valens some eight-year-old Shire wise crack thrall it. I'm telling you, I have, I have. I frequently not frequently. I often see this this man, my friend's dad. He doesn't like me. I think if I had the chance to like plead my case as thirty six year old man like, hey, I'm cool now, like I'm not that shady. Let's go watch alien eight year old that tried to bits while you were just trying to watch a movie food like. Christ. I just wanted to like, I can't go to the movies and see my wife doesn't want to see it out. Can't bring my son. I'll just bring bring it into our house to make everybody watching fucking wise. Crack full-time, r. rated movie. Why did he tell you like, hey, you and your friend go screw off or thing because there's a sleepover spreading. What else are we going to do now? Watch TV. There's only one TV they didn't have cable in the house, but you know, like he would always just rent like whatever new movie he wanted to see watch it. Delo of tail tales from the crypt bordello of blood, Dennis Miller, finest. Worst, Dennis Miller wise cracking in a movie where. Zombies naked ladies, who is this a bunch of naked? Zombies bape. Bape. That's my Dennis Miller. Anyway, that guy aliens. He made us watch lonesome, dove. Anyway, that was like a CBS miniseries based on. I think it's a Larry mcmurtry book. Mercury Murden Murdy, Mary, MC, merge, come on being. In China, being the name Bing doesn't know everything. Pink doesn't know everything, Tim, let me read to you the synopsis of predator. This good synopsis and like you. Larry mcmurtry mercury mcmurtry mcmurtry still with us novelist. He's eighty two years old out in Wichita falls, Texas. You spell that m. c. m. e. r. t. r. e. e. you got soul wrong, like an underwater tree, it's l. a. r. y. okay. Looking at like the tagline, not the tagline, I guess, like the synopsis the plotlines log lines. Each of these movies you can tell like how much better. The first one is all the rest because all the rest have such long involved. Plot synopsis, this is the one sentence in ops for predator. An elite paramilitary rescue rescue team led by major Dutch is on a covert operation Central America when they encounter an alien new hunts them for sport. That's it. There's no fantastic movie right there like you. You walk into any studio in Hollywood. Any idea for a movie here? It is. Spot in the room. Yeah, definitely. Yeah, I got nothing else to say. I joy that movie and I don't like movies like that. What? You know what I enjoyed about it. What's that? Didn't tell you anything about the predators at some point, like even the beginning or at the end, you see that at like two Malian. Is it at the end?.

"The other thing was like i think that thing that was most gary to me was that we had all these plans like from the day one of the podcast the only reason why are our old boss even let us do this was because we had plans to write a book tour mcmurtry you guys and trying to this into a fun show that could be like sold in a different way that's not just audio and so like in my head i was like we have this very clear path and we were on our way we did it for live show and we were you know trying to plan more shows and we were getting like sponsors yada yada yada and in my head i was like why i was like how are we going to do that now and i keep saying we because i still like not letting i don't want it to be like just my thing because we built this together and like it will be a little different bit of abbad catholic is gonna be different just i you know kate was like maybe you should get someone else to fill in for me i don't know yet what it's gonna look like could be two totally different people i the year i don't know but like it just didn't feel right putting someone else in because i just feel like i would be maybe the audience would be to just comparing them to you and so even like in my head i was like well maybe just be fun to rotate like a co host out every now and then like i know you guys loved hearing from freddie jaaz men like our other friends but even still like how do i navigate now all these plans you know it's stupid but they always say like what is it god last when you make plans.

"Okay now speaking of insane stupidity i have to move on to this story from g q so nobody reads g q anymore because why would you read g q right like i'm not sure it had that many subscribers in the first place they full list by the editors of g q of twentyone books that you should not read twenty and books you should not read so that's exciting because there are lots of books that i think that you should not read but the books that they suggest like this is so stupid it's basically the s j w guide books you should burn and it's pretty incredible so number one on their list is lonesome dove by larry mcmurtry hitler mcmurtry is not on the right hillerman mercury i believe is the same guy didn't he write brokeback mountain larry mcmurtry i believe that's right i believe that he wrote yeah that's right he wrote he wrote the screenplay to brokeback mountain so learn mercury is not exactly a right wing dude they say you shouldn't read lonesome dove which is just a story about two friends on the prairie basically and it says quote i actually love lonesome dove but i'm convinced that the cowboy mythos with its rigid masculine emotional landscape glorification of guns and destruction and misogynistic generals is a major factor in the degradation of america rather than perpetuate this myth add look for everyone but particularly american mend the mountain line by jean stafford it's a wicked brilliant dark books that largely on a ranch in colorado but it acts many ways it's a strong rebuttal to all the old toxic western stereotypes we need to explode you mean the western stereotypes about people pioneering out into an area where they had no protection in order to build the rest of the united states you mean that western ethos you mean the of men protecting women that does not everything that happened the almost as good there's plenty of those bad later this week i'm gonna recommend a movie that's about a lot of the bad stuff that happened in the west but lonesome dove.

"I'll do anything kit like those are those are not good kids the little kids in the beginning of broadcast news a really yes sure but thing that is so impressed about this movie is it is so unconcerned with making the characters likable because it's just like simultaneously awful things in wonderful things like he's just constantly just presenting these people their full messing yeah which is why it feels like like something like boy her moonlight were just like here's just chronicling life and you feel like this movie could just go on for like six hours and just continue showing these people at different periods shirt away to like lift go and nicholson like come in and then come out it'd be a tv show now one hundred percent if you pitch this yeah mart miniseries this mcmurtry novel great like i can't wait to make this tv show but that's why like the cancer almost weirdly functions even now when the movie is known as a cancer movie it certainly wasn't sold that way when it came out but even now it functions as kind of twist end because in sort of like titanic where it's like here's a movie about like two people that you're gonna fall in love with for like all their strengths and all their weaknesses and at the end one of them is going to die and it's not the one you might predict like you know it's the younger one and it's much relief so if like you go into movie expecting a cancer movie your braced for like i'm going to have to lose somebody like i'm gonna suffer also brace for illness this movie doesn't have a lot of like you say it's happens like people who live like rich complicated lives and have different relationships in different periods than suddenly get diagnosed with and then die and that's like the most tragic thing in the world and this movie just makes you live with her for like an hour and fifty minutes and then it's just like completely random and sudden well and it's not a device in her character development it doesn't serve to give her any kind of meaning or change her or anyone around her in any way because it doesn't it's it's it's it is that very slice of life thing of like this doesn't.
