Assembled with the promise of being a memoir type deal, this book is actually just essays, with only the first really being an autobiographical sketch. My personal favorite here was "Apologia" an elegy for the animals killed by cars on the roadways. Lopez stops when he comes across roadkill and--unlike some gross anarchists we could talk about--he buries the body as an apology and service.
Read his fiction work, Resistance.
