Robin McLean

Join us live and in-person on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 PM as Robin McLean, MHC 1987, will talk about her feminist western, Pity the Beast.

About the Book

Following in the footsteps of such chroniclers of American absurdity as Cormac McCarthy, Joy Williams, and Charles Portis, Robin McLean's Pity the Beast is a mind-melting feminist Western that pins a tale of sexual violence and vengeance to a canvas stretching back to prehistory, sideways into legend, and off into a lonesome future.
