Last month, Larry Woiwode died. He was North Dakota’s poet laureate and a fixture in the Northern Plains literary scene for a half-century. His second novel, Beyond the Bedroom Wall (1975) earned him the most acclaim and commercial success.
He was not a regular contributor to the Quarterly, but in 1996, we published an interview with him conducted by Rick Watson. Woiwode talks about the idea of a Buffalo Commons, North Dakota, and regionalism.
