Summary

At the Jim Bridger Summary

At the Jim Bridger by Ron Carlson

Welcome to the short stories of Ron Carlson, where strange beach towels turn up in your suburban living room; where the ordinary son of a family of geniuses spins a rollicking tale of happiness and disappointment; and where a desperate ex-con with a broken heart must hide out in a desert hotel, only to make a startling discovery. Epic in scope and confessional in tone, At the Jim Bridger enfolds the reader in a world of love and mystery, and makes us feel better than just about anything written on the page.

At the Jim Bridger Reviews

"The subtle excellence of these stories makes it easy to lose oneself in them and, more impressively, to recall them later with such clarity and emotion that they seem like one's own memories." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Trying to sum up a Ron Carlson story is like trying to hold sparkling spring water in your bare hands--no matter how you cup your fingers, some of the magical stuff leaks out.... At the Jim Bridger shows us a real master at work." --The Seattle Times

"The stories in At the Jim Bridger--eleven exquisite tales of men and women...do the work of true art. Ordinary things, which never before seemed wonderful, suddenly, gracefully, are." --Esquire

"Carlson [has] written an accomplished, open-hearted book, full of good, grown-up humor and fierce intelligence. Writer's writer or reader's writer, Carlson and the stories of At the Jim Bridger deserve all the attention they can get." --The Boston Globe
