In a nutshell: This is an unconventional memoir written by a man only 46 years old, a writer who grew up in Utah, got his education, then raced to New York City in search of action. Quickly, he realized that Manhattan is provincial in its own way. So he came back, first to Torrey, then to Wyoming. In this highly personal and very polished collection of essays and poems, Holdsworth has established a convincing presence as a Western writer with a future.
