Editorial Reviews

Anne-Marie Oomen
This memoir covers the public aspect of his life in Taos with grace and insight, but what we love about many memoirs -- the interaction of outer and inner lives, and the complexity of the conceitedness -- is not fully developed here. In that sense, Frank Waters remains the private, mystical persona we sense behind his novels. -- ForeWord Magazine
Library Journal
These memoirs of the man called the "Grandfather of Southwestern Literature" contain ten essays detailing Waters's personal history and eclectic friendships. Waters, nominated five times for the Nobel Prize for Literature over his 60-year writing career, published fiction and nonfiction on the relationship between the people and the place of Taos, NM. Waters frequently mentions individuals who were creative forces in the artistic community of Taos, detailing his friendships with writer Mabel Dodge Luhan, artist Dorothy Brett, and novelist D.H. Lawrence. Regional public libraries with an interest in the Four Corners area will benefit from the local history and color included in these essays, and the book is essential for academic libraries with collections featuring Native American writers and literature of the New West.--Joyce Sparrow, Oldsmar Lib., St. Petersburg, FL
Kirkus Reviews
Literate, entertaining notes toward a memoir by the late southwestern novelist.
