Hausman is a master. No question there. The American Storybag exemplifies this fact. Wonderful folklore, fantastic anecdotes, poetry at times and always poetry in prose. There's something for everyone here, stories to open the eyes, ears, heart, and soul.
My personal favorite section is On the Road: It's Hausman sprinkled with just a pinch of Kerouac and a dash of Saroyan, and great titles like "The Billboard at the End of the World" and "The Railroad Oil Field Cotton Boll Blues".
Educational, entertaining, thoughtful and reflective. I love Gerald Hausman's work, and have for many years. If you've read his work before, I know you'll love this one. And if you haven't, this is a really good one to start with. I can't recommend this one enough.
