There is a poetic quality there, reality in their works is flexible, and unexplainable things happen. But the other thing they have in common is humor. You can kind of see it straight from reading the blurb.

I mean, a novella about a 99 years old gambler who has been told he is immortal, his giant grandson that likes to put up fences, and a duck is not going to be terribly serious. In fact, I thought it was laugh out loud funny at times. I just liked it that much. A brief, occasionally hilarious, sometimes poignant story set in the Northern California of the mid-twentieth century.

There is not much traditional action. There is Granddaddy Jake - who makes and drinks a whiskey called Death Whisper - and his grandson Tiny. There is a duck. There is a wild boar. There are short philosophical forays regarding stillness and action, fences and openness, then life and death. The writing is simple Despite the I genuinely enjoyed this little book. Despite the directness of the prose, there is an intuitive depth that I ascribe to exceptional observation of the natural world and the human character.

The animals and the land reverberate with significance, and the wild pig - nicknamed Lockjaw - becomes the enemy of the big-hearted Tiny, a kind of porcine white whale. None of that became true. Instead, I thought it was really tragic.
