Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

So I lived in the van, took sponge baths, and used public washrooms. I thought about renting a cottage. But the local people told me that winterized cottages were few and far between. And I had certain social aspirations. There was a standard of housing that I wouldn't go beneath. I wanted the kind of place that Jack London or Jack Kerouac might have rented. It could be lacking in class, but it had to lack class in a certain kind of way. Log cabins with rusty woodstoves and squirrels in the walls were okay, but house trailers fitted out with wall-to-wall shag and motel furniture were unacceptable. If I couldn't find a place with a good view of the forest and the lake, I'd go back to the city, which right now didn't seem like such a bad idea. I hadn't written a sigle paragraph since my departure from Tower Island, and nowadays, the idea of having running hot water and a plug-in typewriter seemed as exotic as any tent camp in the wilderness.
