"We come to see that Baker has written, here as elsewhere, a book of associations...in which he celebrates the superfluous details of life....He is an expert craftsman...["The Anthologist"] is a testament to -- indeed an anthology of -- moments when poetry and life touch against each other....[Baker's work] is a rare example of affectionate art, of brilliant writing that manages to collect and display the odds and ends of existence in a way that makes the reader like it and him." -- Stephen Abell, "The Times Literary Supplement" (London) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"ANOTHER AWESOME WINNER FOR BARR…
[Anna Pigeon's] legion of loyal fans can find out how her story began."
It's 1995. Fresh off the bus from New York City, a broken-hearted 35-year-old named Anna Pigeon takes her first job as a park employee: a decidedly unglamorous, seasonal stint at the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off, she goes hiking alone in the park--never to return. Her co-workers assume she's moved on since her cabin is cleaned out. But when Anna wakes up--trapped at the bottom of a well, naked, with no supplies and no memory of how she got there--she must draw upon all of her strength, courage, and skill to survive. Because whoever set Anna's trap isn't through with her yet…
"EXCITING…takes readers where they've wanted to go for years--to Anna's beginnings as a park ranger.…Misdirection and a rising body count ratchet up the tension."--Publishers Weekly--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition. See all Product Description
