Synopses & Reviews
A ward-winning nature writer Edward Hoagland explores the people, places, events, and themes that have shaped him and his work in this luminous memoir of a life richly lived.
From his childhood in rural Connecticut to some of the earth's last remaining wilderness, from New York parties to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's Animal Department, through literary friendships with men such as John Berryman, Edward Abbey, and Archibald MacLeish that endured and marriages that didn't, Compass Points is an entertaining and moving account of the days and nights of one of our most prescient literary voices.
