Allmänna fakta



StFrancisofAssisi | Mar 12, 2020 |
There was a constellation of novels I consumed at this time, and Woiwode joined Richler's "Cocksure", and "Nothing black but a Cadillac" by Raymond Spence on my shelves. It has, little resemblance in manner and style with "The Graduate." So when read by a twentyish me, seeking some good "Dirty Bits" and some insight into the world that the 70's might produce, it was adequate counterblast to the hip world. It deals with the trials and life of a young family man, somewhat trapped by his mid-Western obligations and horizons. Looking on the net, it seems to have lasted well as a picture of the places now harbouring the trumpery we face in American politics. Worth the read.… (mer)

I really wanted to like this book,and there are parts that I really do enjoy, especially those about enjoying the outdoors. However, as much as I appreciate and respect other people's points of view, even if they were not mine, I had a hard time with the conservative and christian overtones.

Engaging collection of essays from a fine writer. Woiwode tackles guns, Wendell Berry, education, and literature, among other things. I found the first several essays paled in comparison to the later ones - sis more generally cultural pieces come across as the considered opinions of a cultured man; his essays on literature and literary figures have the stamp of authority. Woiwode is at his best in the field of American literature, and his writings on Gardner and Updike were tremendously helpful. I can't imagine not reading the works that he highlights. The book itself is an unusual step for the Christian publisher Crossway, but may be one of the most beautiful books (in terms of physical craftsmanship) that they have ever issued. A stimulating and worthwhile read.… (mer)
