Here I am at half a century old and I haven’t read Edward Abbey. I’ve been aware of his voice in America for years. I’ve heard clips of Abbey reading from his books. I know “about” him. I just haven’t got around to reading the material. I was about to start another book, one set in India, but I pushed it aside and decided to approach Abbey from near the end, with the last of Abbey’s books to be published during his lifetime – The Fool’s Progress – An Honest Novel. I’ll let you know how it goes.
