All the Wrong Places A Life Lost and Found

All the Wrong Places A Life Lost and Found Summary ¾ 9 The prize winning author of Fire Season returns with the heartrending story of his troubled years of flightIn his debut Fire Season Philip Connors recounted with lyricism wisdom and grace his decade as a fire lookout high above remote New Mexico Now he tells the story of what made solitude on the mountain so attractive the years he spent reeling in the wake of a family tragedyAt the age of twenty three Connors was a young man on the make He'd left behind the Minnesota pig farm on which he'd grown up and the brother with Connors achieves here everything I love about uality memoir honest storytelling and emotion gritty realism a glimpse into the human condition and plenty of vicarious experience available to the reader But All the Wrong Places had just a bit Some memoirs I find are merely written as catharsis or testimony of the author s troubles and suffering ie dear diary So much so that when I finish reading them emotionally exhausted I figure I should be getting paid to read them because that s what therapists get paid for right Connors despite delving into heavy feelings such as grief guilt and lack of closure uses his sharp skill in prose to transcend melodrama and self pity He executes his story with tact providing subtleties into his inner world and deep burdening emotionsA nonlinear memoir Connors relays his experience of a devastating family disaster which leaves him grappling with many unanswered uestions and his own identity As we follow him through various geographical locations relationships and jobs including a position at the Wall Street Journal he attempts to unravel the mysteries of himself and his past Connors moves along at an enjoyable pace and uses a relaxed voice making All the Wrong Places a very accessible read He interweaves varying subjects politics racism intimacy philosophy death renewal of the spirit relationships both with people and the natural world and identity At the fulcrum of it all is Connors adoption of his role as an outsider his underlying grief and his unanswered uestions He intertwines reflective moments and insights with light and funny anecdotes all the while lacing in powerful images often prompting me to stop and reread them to deepen their effect I find he hones in on how people feel intimate and connected with each other only through the sharing of their wounds trauma and pain I was left at the end with not a feeling of emotional exhaustion but of comfort in the resiliency of the human spirit and the healing powers of nature All in all a very great read heavy and difficult due to the subject matter but very well done
