doc.hutch, July 18, 2007 (view all comments by doc.hutch)
I got in here because i just finished River Horse, which i bought at Powells while on a visit. It just shone out on a shelf and said, "Read Me." One of the most verbiant, richly delivered and honest books i hve ever read. He uses words i did not know. We are colleagues from Mizzou, one of the finest educational institutions in the world, and he is bringing me back to the craft and the passion that i learned there.

I intend to communicate with him directly, and if you can help that happen, i would greatly appreciate it. I know that he will. We have much to share. We may very well have been in some of the same writing classes together.

Hoping that this may facilitate my getting a copy of the presently named book, but no matter what, i will obtain one and dive in. Without reading it, i can, and almost never would, give it the highest rating possible.
The man is sheer eloquence. Right up there with Larry McMurtry, Ed Abbey, etc.
