Book Review: Gierach's Fool's Paradise

June 3, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

This week on MidCurrent, Tom Helgeson offers his take on John Gierach’s 16th book, Fool’s Paradise. Gierach’s new collection of essays hit bookstores only a couple of weeks ago, and we hear that some sellers are already having to re-order.
But does Fool’s Paradise have the energy and wit of classics like Trout Bum and The View From Rat Lake? As Helgeson says in his review, “This is a nice, often humorous collection of stories carried on a soft, steady current by a good man who is thoughtful about his fishing and writing.”
