This chapter discusses the period between 1997 and 2001, which, for Larry Brown, was filled with success and total dedication to writing. Brown had begun to write the novel that would become Fay in the summer of 1996, working, as he had from the start of his writing career, on a typewriter, though he had replaced his machine more than a dozen times. In late January, Brown traveled to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, where Jeremy Horton was showing 100 Proof. Algonquin’s Katharine Walton lined up publicity events for Brown to do while at the festival, and he was “slightly worried” about being overbooked. Brown made another public appearance on 13 April when he served as the keynote speaker at the opening of the new Oxford-Lafayette County Library.
