Book Review of Blanco and Things About to Disappear

Blanco and Things About to Disappear


From the back of book:

Vast Spaces, Parched Lives
Allen Weir writes with precision and power of ordinary people with bizarre obbsessions in the backwaters of our land: a dust-bitten, beer-blasted Texas town called Blanco, where dreams burst like pop-tops in fillinf stations and superhighways stretch to nowhere: in a minor league ballpark in pennsylvania, where a fan catches a baseball then trades it for a kiss in the last happy moment of his life, and in tourist attraction underground where a man's love of caves draws him further and further from his wife and son.
