A Long Apprenticeship–Review of “Bearings and Distances” by Glenn Arbery

Newberg, OR: Wiseblood Books, 2015. Paperback. 346 pp. ISBN: 9780692468203

reviewed by Stephen Barnes

The old saw among the literati, that all novel plots can really be reduced to just two—namely, a man goes on a journey, and a stranger comes to town—is given the lie in Glenn Arbery’s stunning first novel, Bearings and Distances. The two plots can be combined, producing a third possibility: a man may leave his home only to return as a stranger, a stranger even to himself.
