Overview

This is a story about a man who lives alone because he chooses to. In his cabin in the New England woods, he lives with his collection of old newspapers and carefully saved nails, his mule and his owl. His much-loved cousin, Nan, is just close enough for him to visit now and then. The man who lives alone leads a solitary life, quite and content.

In simple, lyrical prose, Doland Hall creates a moving and believable portrait of his affectionate, eccentric man, from childhood to old age. We understand why he is the way he is, the names and picture so his day, and finally, how those days will end. It's a story about self-sufficiency and about solitude, about the difference between loneliness and being alone, about living and about dying.
