McMurtry, Larry — While Larry McMurty and Guy Vanderhaeghe both write Westerns, it is their dramatic style of writing that will draw readers to their work. Each writes about the rugged beauty of the western landscape, the chaotic battles that haunt their protagonists, and nuanced love stories that bring their characters to life. -- Rebecca Sigmon
McCarthy, Cormac, 1933- — Sharing a keen eye for the subtle beauty of the land, whether it's the 19th-century Canadian West (Guy Vanderhaeghe) or the early 20th-century Texas-Mexican borderlands (Cormac McCarthy), these writers transform the classic western into lush, character-driven literary fiction that is as thought-provoking as it is exciting. -- Mike Nilsson
Kelton, Elmer — Atmospheric and richly detailed, novels by these writers largely take place on the nineteenth-century frontier, often recounting fierce conflicts between Native Americans, frontiersmen, hunters, and ranchers for the sake of revenge, land, or animals. Both authors imbue their work with a bittersweet sense of the inexorable passage of time. -- Mike Nilsson
Erdrich, Louise — Although their work rarely overlaps in time or place, these authors each examine the conflicts between Native Americans and European immigrants, with Guy Vanderhaeghe writing from the European viewpoint and Louise Erdrich writing through a Native American lens. Both feature complex characters, lyrical description, and abundant food for thought. -- Mike Nilsson
Franzen, Jonathan; Soli, Tatjana — These authors' works are Descriptive and Character-driven, and they share: the genre 'Literary fiction' and the subject 'Interpersonal relations'.
