Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, praises McClanahan’s “enormously personable style” and calls O the Clear Moment “playful, self-deprecating, and wickedly sharp.” A number of the stories in the book are centered in and around Maysville, McClanahan’s home town. Ed McClanahan is also the author of The Natural Man, Famous People I Have Known, and three other books. His work has appeared in Esquire, Playboy, and Rolling Stone, and he has taught at Stanford University, the University of Montana, UK, and elsewhere.
