Memoirs

Many books are easily forgotten whereas some sear the impression of their words and the stories they relate deep into the folds of your memory.  That memory may be short or long after the reading of these latter books, but those books will never be forgotten.

Fiction

John Smelcer’s The Trap tells the story of an entire people through the alternating points of view of two men, Albert Least-Weasel and his teenage grandson, Johnny Least-Weasel.  Heightening this sense—and intention, no doubt—of a story striving to transcend the details of its own plot and convert itself into the larger and more encompassing story of a steadily vanishing way of life in a part of the country—the Alaskan Artic Circle—where Nature remains the primary force to be reckoned with are the almost didactic asides in the voice of the single omniscient narrator.
