Editorial Reviews

Review

“To read two pages of Hoagland at random is to know immediately that you are in the hands of a supremely tough-minded man and a man of perfect honesty.” (Newsweek)

“Hoagland has captured the restless adventuresomeness of our frontiersmen, and the riot of nature in its unspoiled glory.” (John Irving)

“The best essayist of my generation.” (John Updike)

“One of the very best writers of his generation.” (Saul Bellow)

“A writer born, a writer obsessed.” (Alfred Kazin)

“Edward Hoagland is a strong, solid writer with a splendid feel for the intricacy, queerness and stubborn pertinacity of life. He is also, so far as i know, the best essayist working in our perishing republic.” (Edward Abbey)

Alaskan Travels is much more than a travel book. It is the chronicle of a love affair, with a powerful landscape and a powerful woman- a wonderful double portrait.” (Paul Theroux)

“Hoagland's genius is being in touch with both the natural world and his own life... He is that rare animal, an unpedantic essayist, and like his greatest predecessors he has found a way to turn self-consciousness into a fine art.” (Paul Theroux)

“Edward Hoagland is a natural. His essays flow like running water, pure and clear.” (Studs Terkel)

“Literally, we are plunged and immersed in the Yukon or Yemen or Belize and made not only to experience it and hear about it but to absorb and understand it.” (Wallace Stegner)

About the Author

Edward Hoagland has written more than twenty books, including the travel memoirs Alaskan Travels and African Calliope, the essay collections Walking the Dead Diamond River and The Tugman’s Passage, and the novels Cat Man and Seven Rivers West. He worked in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus while attending Harvard, and later traveled the world writing for a number of national magazines including Harper’s and Esquire. He has received numerous prestigious literary awards, and taught at many American colleges and universities. He is a native New Yorker, who now divides his time between Martha’s Vineyard and Burton, Vermont.

Howard Frank Mosher is the author of ten novels and two memoirs. He has won many awards for his fiction, including Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Literature Award, the American Civil Liberties Award for Excellence in the Arts, the Vermont Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts, the New England Book Award and, most recently, the 2011 New England Independent Booksellers Association's President's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts.
