Taking the ground of McMurtry and McGuane, Joni Rodgers drives a fresh and dangerous road through Montana, 1979. Having freed herself from everybody who ever tried to silence her, Tulsa Bitters finds her voice as a late-night deejay in Helena, and her dark tones attract every man in town. But the lover she chooses is an edge-walking, self-destructive misfit 20 years her senior. Crazy for Trying is a seductive, literate, and explosive western love story.
