Inhaltsangabe: Booklist said it well: "Dorn is probably the late twentieth century's finest chronicler of what he calls 'contemporary horse culture.' His subject is always the real West: not the West Coast, not Seattle, San Francisco, and L.A., but 'real towns' such as Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Laramie, Wyoming, and Ryegate, Montana. ('Real towns,' Dorn says, 'don't have parking meters.') We're talking the Big Open. The Big Empty."
This hefty book a collection of thirty years' worth of occasional poems and prose features a generous selection from Dorn's hard-to-find short fiction, stories populated with the working poor and the dispossessed drifters, searchers, fugitives, Native Americans, and itinerant trailer-park families. It also includes the book-length poem "Recollections of Gran Apachería" (1974), a sad, polemical, spiritual meditation on Geronimo, the Apaches, and their annihilation at the hands of European descendants. A third of the book consists of inflammatory essays, Gonzo travelogues, and idiosyncratic cultural analyses, and these, especially, find Dorn in fine form: witty, perverse, cantankerous, shocking, always writing well, and absolutely unable to tolerate any degree of cant.
From Booklist: Dorn is probably the late twentieth century's finest chronicler of what he calls contemporary "horse culture": the real West, not the West Coast, but "real towns" such as Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Laramie, Wyoming, and Ryegate, Montana (home of the annual Testicle Festival). "Real towns don't have parking meters." This hefty book finally collects some of Dorn's hard-to-find fiction, populated with "neo-peckerwood" drifters, "bull dikes," Mexicans, pot-smoking sheriffs, Native Americans, and families. It includes his book-length poem, Recollections of Gran Aracheria (1973), a sad, polemical, spiritual meditation on Geronimo, the Apaches, and their annihilation at the hands of European descendants. A third of the book consists of recent inflammatory essays on subjects as diverse as Seattle, Havana ("western Cuba"), Montana, and the Modern Language Association convention in Houston. The book is Dorn in fine form, witty, perverse ("mainly, people just come to the U.S. of A. to abuse some food"), cantankerous, shocking, and always well written, with an absolute inability to tolerate any degree of cant. From its scathing satires of academics, Republicans, and a new West "shining its noble light on Real Estate" to its immaculately researched, heartbreaking observations concerning the situations of Native Americans and its unsentimentalized memoriam to Richard Brautigan, Way West is a ghastly, funny tour de force rodeo of cultural clowns, moral imperatives, and all manner of riff-raff. Way out. Greg Burkman
