Book Pages: 184 Illustrations: Published: December 1986

Author: Wallace Fowlie

General Interest > Biography, Letters, Memoirs

Wallace Fowlie here gives us his third book of memoirs—the best yet. Sites is thematically focused on places that marked Fowlie's life and affected his way of looking at the world. This brilliantly written book exhibits great clarity and elegant simplicity, virtues that only an experienced—and good—writer can achieve. Although Sites has a strong unfolding narrative pattern that encourages you to read it from beginning to end, it can be browsed in to good purpose, for you can read any chapter out of sequence and still relish it.
