When James Brown crooned This is a Man’s World I’m sure he wasn’t talking about British Columbia’s remote Kootenay Valley, though he might as well have been. If you want to visit this rough and poetic Man-land, at least in your mind, grab a cup of burnt coffee or a six-pack of swill and check out D.W. Wilson’s new book, Ballistics. It’s mantastic.
But if you’ve got enough deer guts, fist-fights, and flannel in your life already, you can just check out my review of the book in this week’s High Country News. You’ll get the idea.
