Bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Stephen Hunter discusses his latest book, FRONT SIGHT: THREE SWAGGER NOVELAS. We also discuss how film has changed through the years, what it was like to have on of his books adapted into the movie SHOOTER with Mark Wahlberg (as well as a TV series), and his time in the military. And we're calling this special episode: Writers on Zoom Drinking Coffee.

Bios:
Stephen Hunter: Stephen Hunter has written over twenty novels. The retired chief film critic for The Washington Post, where he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism, he has also published two collections of film criticism and a nonfiction work, American Gunfight. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
William R. Hincy: “Some people run from their demons; others sit down and have cocktails with theirs.” William R. Hincy is a man who does and writes about the latter. Having become a writer after deciding it was the only sensible thing for a problem drinker to do, Hincy aspires to use literature to connect society on an emotional level through characters who no longer create messes but have instead become the mess. Between rounds, Hincy has won 3 American Fiction Awards, an International Book Award, and his personal anthology of short fiction WITHOUT EXPIRATION was named one of the Best Books of 2020 by Kirkus Reviews. He now lives outside Los Angeles with his wife and kids, having found solace in the notion that the only things sacred are self and whiskey-winged interludes.
