5.0 out of 5 stars Love, Life and Living, 16 Aug. 2010
This review is from: West: A Journey Through the Landscapes of Loss (Hardcover)
There are some things that pick you up and give you a zest for life. Although it's perhaps a bit hackneyed, Steve Windwood's song 'When You See a Chance' has this effect on me. So too does this book.

I picked it up in various bookshop a few times, only to put it back down again, dismissing it on the suspicion it would be too maudlin - although my wife says I do maudlin really well what with mournful Nordic jazz and miserable Americana.

But its just beautiful. It's more of a biography than anything, focusing on the love he has experienced in life; what made and makes his life meaningful - and ultimately how he went through profund loss and found some kind of renewal. And his writing is emeplary. I imagine reading it many times in the future.
