“Last Bus to Wisdom,” by Ivan Doig: Brown bag lunch before discussion which begins around 12 noon. “By the time he died in April [2015] at age 75, Ivan Doig had created a body of work that helped shape our understanding of rural working-class life in the postwar American West. Raised by Montana ranchers in the 1940s and ’50s, Doig lived most of his adult years in Seattle but never really left Big Sky Country. From his early memoir, “This House of Sky,” to this final novel, “Last Bus to Wisdom,” Doig often gave Montana a leading role…. “Last Bus to Wisdom” is more than not bad. It’s one of Doig’s best novels, an enchanting 1950s road-trip tale that swaps Kerouac’s Sal Paradise for a plucky 11-year-old named Donal Cameron.”—New York Times review.
