In Rowing to Sweden, Fredrick Barton continues the very best of the essay tradition: wisdom, grace, a stubborn curiosity, and the urge to follow an idea wherever it leads. Lucky for the reader, Barton¿s ideas always lead to fascinating terrain: spirituality, morality, race, contemporary politics, and the author¿s enduring love of cinema. An intelligent book that will open both heart and mind.
¿Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic and Desire
When someone as smart and big-hearted as Rick Barton tackles subjects as diverse as faith, family, God, government, movies, war and literature, the result is a rich, intricately woven tapestry of memoir and criticism, a multi-layered essaying on the very things that make our everyday lives meaningful and maddening. Rowing to Sweden is a generous gift of words.
¿Steven Church, author of Theoretical Killings: Essays and Accidents
