Caution Men in Trees

Front Cover
W. W. Norton & Company, 2002 - 193 pages
Darrell Spencer writes wonderfully textured stories of men and the turning points in their lives. His rich storytelling style, full of details and asides, emotion and history, gives depth to simple events--these men are witty, poetic, and thoughtful. Combining the humor of Barry Hannah and the spare, emotionally charged style of Raymond Carver, Spencer limns the lives of men in the new West.
