Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Culley goes for the sweeping Whitman-esque gesture over the self-conscious postmodern curlicue every time. He's blissfully free of self-pity. His body is a source of power and adventure, not a mystifying font of confusion and humiliation; he has pushed himself physically, sweated and bled and collapsed at night in exhaustion. He has a healthy ego but he's not a narcissist ? he's primarily interested in the world beyond his own small experience. And if the economic downturn continues, the next wave of young workers to arrive in cities could do worse than follow Culley's example of how to live on very little money and keep your spirits up and your integrity intact."
