The Awkward Ozarker: A Curious Tale of Self Reinvention in a Scantily Settled Land
by Blant Hurt
In this witty, wise, heart-warming memoir, Blant Hurt, a fiftysomething flatlander with urban sensibilities, buys a ratty weekend cabin up in the dark heart of the Ozark Mountains. His new wife has a passing familiarity with this rugged area, but still… What are they doing? The stage is set for an unexpected adventure up in the wilds of Izard County, Arkansas.
