Robert Mailer Anderson’s Boonville Picks

by Annie Gowan Stone

Robert Mailer Anderson’s 2001 novel Boonville featured such memorable characters as a marijuana-growing grandma and a potter named Pensive Prairie Sunset. Here Anderson shares his favorite haunts in the small town.

“Enjoy dinner at the Boonville Hotel (shown), and then wander the gardens outside with a glass of Golden Eye pinot. (If you looted their wine cellar with me in high school, I’m pretty sure the statute of limitations is up.)” 14050 Hwy. 128, Boonville, (707) 895-2210, boonvillehotel.com.

“Sing-alongs to jukebox favorites occur spontaneously at the Boonville Saloon. Most weekends could be considered a family reunion, but with a few less fights.” 14161 Hwy. 128, Boonville, (707) 895-3725

“Cross the city limits south of Boonville and park by the towers of gravel (a poor man’s Stonehenge). Then turn up your radio and look at our stars. They’re better than yours.” North side of Highway 128
