Carly Flandro visits with Thomas McGuane at his ranch for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle and writes an entertaining profile of the author, fly fisher, cutting-horse enthusiast and MidCurrent editorial board member.

“When ‘Rancho Deluxe’ came out, McGuane remembered reading a headline in the Livingston Enterprise that said something like: United Artists owe Livingston a decent movie.  ‘It’s great to be ostracized by people you didn’t want to know anyway,’ he said.”
