I just received the latest copy of Bookforum, with my review of Willie Hensley’s Fifty Miles from Tomorrow: A Memoir of Alaska and the Real People.

As I wrote in the review “…Hensley’s memoir is a compelling tale of doing what had to be done and recognizing the spiritual depth and profound love it takes to become a real person in Alaska, or anywhere else.”

Hensley’s book was a pleasure to read, and the editors at Bookforum wonderfully professional. Check back later this week to learn more about Hensley and his thoughts on writing his first book.

    That was great — congrats on your review, and what an interesting publication! Hadn’t heard of it. Feel free to tell us more about your involvement. I’m always eager to hear proof that book reviewing still happens, and it’s great to see an Alaska book get some attention.

  2. Thanks much! My brother, Chris Lehmann, is a Bookforum editor, though not for this particular review. They were looking for an Alaskan to review an Alaskan book – imagine! – and he suggested they try me. It’s a great publication.
