At least once a year the missus and I like to load up the motor car and drive to Ruidoso, New Mexico where we met and sparked. The drive from Dallas to the Land of Enchantment is long and stooopid dull with points of interest being giant electricity making windmills and a statue of a white buffalo in Snyder, Texas.
One year we armed ourselves with some audio books to help pass the time. One was Larry McMurtry’s tome on Crazy Horse. Love Larry McMurtry. Lonesome Dove, Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment and all that. Man can write.
But as we were listening to Crazy Horse I was also struck by how good the narrator is. In this almost quiet, unassuming way he is taking Larry’s words and painting pictures in my brain. Who is this guy?
It’s Scott Brick.
