About the Author
Praise For The Same River Twice: A Memoir…
The New Yorker
Chris Offutt picks up where Daniel Boone left off...in search of new frontiers.
St. Petersburg Times
Offutt the diarist has no models. The Same River Twice is a wild original...[displaying] the nihilistic passivity of a graduate student with the physical robustness of a convict.
The New York Times Book Review
The story of Mr. Offutt's journey is so rich and fantastic and desperately honest that it could stand alone. But twined with the slower, lovely wanderings of a man confronting wild nature in the womb of his wife, The Same River Twice is as moving as the current he must cross and recross to find his way.
