Product Overview

THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF BILL HOLM'S INFLUENTIAL FIRST BOOK OF ESSAYS

-Bill Holm's essays test the general assumptions of Americans about themselves against the private realities of their lives in a particular place. The place is Minneota, Minnesota, vividly evoked in Tom Guttormsson's photographs as well as in Holm's words."-TOBIAS WOLFF

"A good book, perhaps even a great book. Holm has found his voice, and he speaks to the 'hollowness of heart' words that remind us and convince us that the true symbols of fullness of heart exist only in nature and in failures like Pauline, rather than in things that can he charged on credit cards."-ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS

"Bill Holm's essay 'The Music of Failure' is worth the price of the whole book. Why will Americans agree to experience so many things, but not failure? The beauty of failure is his theme. A brilliant essay."-ROBERT BLY

"Bill Holm's is a classic American voice. It's the voice of the prairie radical, the village agnostic, toting volumes of Walt Whitman."-LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Bill Holm is one of Minnesota's funniest and most thought-provoking essayists and poets."-LIBRARY JOURNAL
