Amador Publ.,
Pub. Date:
Duke City is Albuquerque -- the commercial, educational, medical, military metropolis that contains half the population of New Mexico. Luminarias, balloons, atomic bombs, bats, false arrest, hunting, finding, moonwatching, DWI, cops, schools, litter, mufflers, stray dogs, and a fumbling old alchemist, who attempts to use his occult powers to bring about his goal of peace and quiet, with results that are comical and less than satisfactory, giving pause to those of us who feel called upon to change the world."Willson's keen insight into human nature is intermingled cleverly within the stories' events, revealing both the stupid and the serious, the touching and the absurd, leaving the reader feeling that he has just been exposed to a truth that he has sensed before, but which for the first time is verbalized." -- THE SMALL PRESS REVIEW
