Gwen Florio's debut mystery novel "Montana" is deservedly a finalist for this year's High Plains Book Awards. Florio, who retired as an editor and journalist for the Missoulian in order to devote her time to her own writing, has already won the 2014 Pinckley Prize for Crime Fiction for Montana. As an unapologetic and avid consumer of mystery genre fiction, I was intrigued and won over by the "Montana" protagonist, a veteran journalist named Lola with foreign reporting experience similar to Florio's own. Lola, just pulled out of Afghanistan by her editor, comes to Montana to stay with one of her few close friends, a fellow journalist she has not seen for years - only to find her murdered behind her remote cabin. Lola plunges into the investigation, and must learn what for her are an entirely new set of cultural mores - as when she queries a rancher about the size of his spread in a local café.
...
Florio, who previously reported from Afghanistan and various countries in the Middle East for the Denver Post, convincingly creates a character who has left that same dangerous journalistic environment and is still compulsively seeking its adrenalin rush and professional challenge. Lola's initial reactions to both Montana and the U.S. in general offer a vivid portrait of a journalist's post-traumatic stress disorder: as she retrieves her luggage, "she cast sidelong glances at her fellow passengers, retrieving ... cylindrical cases that looked as though they could contain grenade launchers.


Reporter Loses Thick Skin, Takes Cheap Shot @ eGriz |

Missoulian reporter Gwen Florio is apparently either the victim of a theft or has had surgery to remove the thick skin reporters build up during their studies in journalism school. Missoula police have not been alerted to a thick skin disappearance, and detectives say they have not been asked to search for an epidermis. Missoulian readers are concluding Florio has shed hers voluntarily.

...
I don't know where Florio got her journalism degree, but if it was in the hallowed halls of the J-school at UM, where I went, I'm pretty sure she skipped class the day they covered lede graphs. It's been awhile, but I recall something about getting who, what, when, where, why, how and to whom all into one sentence. I dunno, maybe it's fuzzy, but that's how I did it for almost twenty years and that's how I still see it done elsewhere.
Did you know Florio once reported for the Philadelphia Bulletin?
...
Florio either didn't bother to actually peruse those links she searched on the site, or, if she did, she ignored their context and the reaction to them entirely. It's hard to conclude anything other than her intention was to make it appear as though such comments represent the site as a whole.
...
Despite the fact that this information wasn't confirmed anywhere else (except Twitter, for what its worth), the discussion that followed was laced with anti-feminist epithets and declarations VERY similar to the ones that Gwen used in her opening paragraphs of the article you mention. I was disgusted. There was no reason for people to attack the alleged victim (happy now??) for a football player being expelled, which is a decision that would reside with the UNIVERSITY, and NOT the victim. I saw many comments wondering if she consented and later felt guilty, and that this is typically what happens when you piss off a woman.
