T






LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

hank God for summertime. It's okay to ignore phone calls, settle in for afternoons at a café, or a rainy day when you can stay indoors and flip pages, or take leisurely train rides with a pile of books on the seat beside you.

Dorothy Allison continually speaks her mind in order to effect change in this country, and it is her voice, stridently honest, that has made her the exciting, intelligent woman that she is.

We've also got books that look at the myths and legends of the Wild West, including outlaws like Billy the Kid and lawmen like Texas Ranger Leander McNelly, plus reviews of the latest from Annie Proulx and Steve Erickson, a collection of Mayan folktales, and more.
