DON'T LET ALL THE PRETTY DAYS GET BY by Bruce Hoppe

Back-To-One Books
2442 Cerrillos Road, Suite 164
Santa Fe, NM 87505
www.backtoonebooks.com
Genre: Fiction
Rating: Very Good
ISBN: 097776110X, $12.95, 200 pp.


This is a contemporary story about a young woman, Teddy Gibbs, nudist balloonists, New Mexico politics, and other crazy characters. As advertised on the back cover:

"Hoppe has figured out how to tell the story of the marginalized communities of the rural heartland in literary lingo that resonates far beyond its point or origin. In Don’t Let All The Pretty Days Get By he gives us a post-modern romp through the New West."

This aspect of Hoppe’s writing is the key to the true value of this novel. Bruce Hoppe is a freelance journalist and has received nine New Mexico Press Association awards while working as a journalist for the Union County Leader in Clayton, NM. He is an educated, experienced writer with a strong style and distinct sense of humor. I can certainly recommend this book, and it should be of particular interest to readers in the Four Corners area.
