LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

he excruciating pain, unimaginable joy, extreme confusion, and debilitating fear of childhood all mix together with God to create the hell of writing a novel. Michael Ventura takes us on the trip in "Letters at 3 AM." After the novel is done, some authors find they can't escape it. Rick Bragg discusses his experience with a public that constantly approaches him about his previous work in "Bragging Rites."

Reviews this week include "The Road Home" by Jim Harrison, "Pullers" by Tom Graves, "Raw Deal: Horrible And Ironic Stories Of Forgotten Americans" by Ken Smith, "Nobody's Son: Notes From an American Life" by Luis Alberto Urrea, "Postcards from the Ledge" by Greg Child, as well as mini reviews from Austin Chronicle.
