W. C. JamesonThe difference between Flynn and so many western writers today has to do with craftsmanship.
Flynn builds a story like a luthier builds a guitar, each carefully shaped and moulded piece fitting perfectly with the other. I noticed this in his great novel, North to Yesterday. That book came out around the same time as Lonesome Dove. Though McMurty's book won the Pulitzer and the NBA, many will argue that Flynn's was by far the better of the two.
