This chapter focuses on the time Larry Brown and Clyde Edgerton decided to write a short story together. The result was the unfinished but hilarious “And How Are You,” which sat for several years until Edgerton decided to send it out for publication. Although Edgerton sent the piece to at least one journal, it was rejected. Brown’s main project during this time was a new novel, Father and Son, on which he began working in early 1994. Ravenel generally liked what she read, declaring that parts of the manuscript “may be your best ever”; however, she thought Brown had too many driving and drinking scenes reminiscent of those in Big Bad Love. By March 1995, Brown had written 233 manuscript pages and thought he was about half finished with the novel.
