The True Grit of Charles Portis


The writer of True Grit has remained a recluse all these years and shuns the new attention paid to his class western. Charles Portis is the subject of a New York Times story, but the author refused an interview.  Nonetheless the article offers an interesting perspective on Portis and his work as a writer.
