He looks almost as good in a tweed jacket

The Guardian UK ran a profile of Thomas McGuane this past Saturday. Items of note: while the headline borrows from McGuane's description of his writing process, it also echoes the title of fellow MSU alum Richard Ford's most recent novel. Also, Tom Brokaw apparently nags McGuane to write about politics and war, and McGuane recommends Nell Freudenberger and Julie Orringer's short stories. I wholeheartedly agree. (With McGuane's recommendations, not with Brokaw.)

(I like this running a picture thing I have going. Now I need to find an excuse to borrow a pic of Ford from the NYT to complete the trifecta.)
