Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A collection of high-energy, previously unpublished letters by the late author of The Monkey Wrench Gang and Desert Solitaire shares his observations on a wide variety of topics, from sex and the Bond girls to religion and the war in Vietnam.


Review:

"As a correspondent, Edward Abbey was impulsive, unsparing, irascible, epigrammatic...free ranging, cymbal crashing, an anarchist in mind as well as politics, encased...in an ever-shaken snow globe of contradictions, provocations, bathroom-wall jokes, and fortissimo declarations."

Jonathan Miles, New York Times Book Review, 11/19/2006

Book Description: Milkweed Editions, United States, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 233 x 165 mm. Brand New Book. But hell, I do like to write letters. Much easier than writing books. And write letters Ed Abbey did. In his famous -- or infamous -- 45-year career, Abbey s cards and letters became as legendary as his books for their wit, vitriol, and ability to speak truth to power. Published here for the first time, the letters offer a fascinating, often hilarious glimpse into the mind of one of America s most iconoclastic and beloved authors. No subject was too banal, too arcane, or too deep for Abbey to expound on: sex, cheerleaders, Mormons, Aspen, and the Bond girls are covered as gleefully as Stegner, Dylan, Chomsky, Buddhism, and betrayal. Whether scolding an editor to simplify ( I ve had to waste hours erasing that storm of fly-shit on the typescript ) or skewering the chicken-hawk proponents of the war in Vietnam, Abbey s righteous indignation gives hope and inspiration to a generation that desperately needs both.
