  •  Slowspoke


The adventures of the author's youth are recalled when he encounters the emotional equivalent of a tractor-trailer gust: the news that the beloved old woods near his house is about to be logged and developed. He begins an effort to save the woods. The narrative alternates between past and present, dream and reality, as he looks with a fresh gaze at his Kentucky home, with the precise love of someone slated to give a eulogy.
