Best Writer

James Lee Burke

The Indy’s early archives are woefully incomplete, so stories of the paper’s first year tend to take on a life of their own. For instance, there’s the tale of who’s responsible for the first published “fuck” in the Independent’s pages. According to James Lee Burke’s daughter Pamala, who now does publicity for her father, the answer tracks back to a certain New York Times best-selling author who owns a modest ranch just outside of Missoula. Pamela says it was roughly 25 years ago when the Indy's editors decided to run an excerpt from a Burke book that included the F-bomb. Rest assured, James Lee Burke is still telling it like it is all these years later. His latest novel, The Jealous Kind, is set for release Aug. 30. James Lee Burke: jamesleeburke.com
