    Hardcover ´ Butcher's Crossing Kindle ↠ butcher's kindle, crossing epub, Butcher's Crossing PDFEPUBWhy read a historical novel about a privileged Harvard dropout who wants to find himself by going on a buffalo hunt? 1 It's by John Williams who wrote one of my three favourite novels Stoner which I reviewed HERE as well as his masterpiece Augustus which I reviewed HERE2 Hunting is not what it's really about probably like Moby Dick?3 It was a good follow on from Cold Mountain which I reviewed HERE two totally different US landscape based stories set only a few years apartWhat This Is and Is Not• This is a road movie without the road the car or the film cameras• It's a Western without cows cowboys or indians native Americans• It's a character based story but the main characters don't speak or move because they’re the landscape and weather• It's about big beasts big wilderness big ambitions some big

    Hardcover ´ Butcher's Crossing Kindle ↠ butcher's kindle, crossing epub, Butcher's Crossing PDFEPUBWilliams’ biggest achievement in this novel is that there isn’t an ounce of overblown characterization in the diverging life perspectives that populate Butcher's Crossing an emerging town in the Great Plains of the old west In spite of the bison hunters the dusty brothel with the purring prostitute the inexperienced city boy Will Andrews from Boston and the drunkard who nurses his whiskey with a mucky Bible and prayerful gibberish this is not the predictable Western the reader might anticipate Clichés are exploited to serve the story not employed to construc

    Hardcover ´ Butcher's Crossing Kindle ↠ butcher's kindle, crossing epub, Butcher's Crossing PDFEPUBJohn Williams wrote four novels None of them however sold many copies during his lifetime I remember some years ago seeing and scanning stories about John Williams with headlines such as “The Best Writer You Never Heard Of” or something similar And that certainly applied to me I had never heard of him and I couldn’t read his books because they were out of print In fact although there were critics who praised his work his books sold few copies before disappearing – literally in some cases into the trash bin of historyHe received his greatest but fleeting publicity when his epistolary novel set in ancient Rome Augustus won the National Book Award in 1973 But it didn’t sell many copies eitherFast forward to 2013A dramatic change occurred when the New York Review of Books NYRB re issued Stoner a novel about a quiet unassuming and in many
