Format: Paperback
Blouin maintains no genre has yet been coined to describe his book properly. He's right, although the clever mix of poetry and prose is reminiscent of Ondaatje's The Collected Works of Billy the Kid. Alternately, think of it as a daily devotional. You can pick it up, open it at random, read a few lines, stop, and then ponder the mysteries of life as they enveloped Cash and Nowlan. Tomorrow and the next day, the experience can be repeated; a few more lines can be savoured.

Or, you can take a few consecutive hours out of your life, play some country music (or the blues, if you insist) and read, in one sitting, a book that is compelling, insightful and thoroughly unconventional.

- Paul Gessell, The National Post
