Tim Cahill is one of the best writers of his generation. His work is funny, surprising, and deep. I first read him back in the 80s, when I was a young dirtbag hitchhiking to Alaska in search of adventure and a disgusting job. (Found both.) He’s inspired generations of writers, travelers, and humorists. Here’s a terrific piece Tim wrote recently about creativity, the importance of story, and his experience of dying in the Grand Canyon.
Here’s a link to Tim’s conversation with Kyle Thiermann.
