By Carl Gustafson,Talon Gustafson,John Sarkett

An offbeat, unusually compelling on-the-road magazine via blues singer, Carl Gustafson, who says he does not like track, in truth, he prefers silence. (Calling to brain keyboard immortal and kooky Glenn Gould who he acknowledged he did not like piano music.)

Who is Carl Gustafson, you'll ask? An iconoclast, a insurgent, a provocateur.

A flag bearer for human dignity?

An Indiana Jones sort adventurer, seeker of fact, justice and a greater American means? convinced, convinced, definitely.

An outsider artist, a Henry Darger operating in obscurity on his grand imaginative and prescient for his oversize cloth of lifestyles, and wishing to proportion it? Oh, sure.

And combine this in, too: one half Edward Abbey for his meticulous strength of remark ("I want that mankind, wealthy or terrible, may perhaps at the very least plant a unmarried flower or signal their signature upon their lifestyles in a few exact means. in the event that they do, i'm going to detect it."), one half Thoreau logging nature notes, one half Kerouac at the highway, one half Dylan Thomas raging into the nice evening, and eventually nineteenth century French composer Hector Berlioz writing his funny and insightful Evenings within the Orchestra - merely this time the orchestra is a blues band.

Another half anthropologist Margaret Mead dwelling one of the natives, one other half Zen grasp together with his Buddhist popularity, reluctant or differently, of all issues round him on any given day, he rigorously observes and notates all of the minutia round him on any given day, all of the whereas maintaining a talk with himself, occasionally bemused, occasionally offended, occasionally transcendent.

The writing here's paradoxical, maddening, problematic by way of turns....and then unexpectedly riveting. you will see your self in those pages - that is the riveting - after which, i believe you may simply see the chance of your higher self, too. that is the magical.
