"On the first night of the new literary season, the actor Barry Corbin brought the house down, Texas Style.
He was reading 'Sick Day," a short story by Tom Doyal about a middle-aged bookkeeper's day off, to a packed auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art, and he could barely get through a line without hysterical laughter from the audience.
Mr. Corbin - who played the wealthy, overbearingly macho former astronaut in the television series 'Northern Exposure' - wore an oversized stetson and full quill ostrich cowboy boots. From his mouth dangled the stub of a cigar, which he kept pulling out at the punch lines while thumping his heel.
Lester, the story's main character, 'watched a quiz show for a while,'
Mr. Corbin said, thumbing his rodeo-championship belt buckle.
'Not only could he not answer the questions, he didn't even recognize some of the categories. 'I need to read more,'' the actor recited, quoting Lester's lament in a deep, although clogged-up (Lester has a sinus problem), Texas accent - no difficult task for
Mr. Corbin, himself a native Texan."

David Barboza, The New York Times, Sunday, May 5, 1996.
