I found 'Old Songs in a New Cafe' to be the choice selection of Waller¿s essays, although 'One Good Road Is Enough' and 'Just Beyond The Firelight' contain excellent essays as well. Waller is a master of dressing emotions in words and for me a new experience. After finding this author, I read his fiction as well. I don't care for some of the subject matter of the fiction but was intrigued with the sensitive prose. Behind it all is a seeker who has 'been circling a thousand years and still does not know whether he is a Falcon, or a storm, or a great song.' Waller sets me on a high plains afternoon remembering the flowers and the wind, dancing through the late autumn dust remembering those who were free.

Robert James Waller is the personification of passion. His writing brings humanity into a greater and more meaningful perspective. This is the one book I've given to everyone I care for. A 'must-have' in every reader's library.
