Pale Light of Sunset free pdf "Real people don t run away from. . .But real people can run away to. . ." In 1936, a child is born in the mountains of West Virginia. In 2005, he scatters his past into a deep canyon of rock. "The Pale Light of Sunset: Scattershots and Hallucinations in an Imagined Life" illuminates the journey of this boy, a constant tourist and visitor, who travels everywhere, yet belongs nowhere. Through tales of swarming hornets and swinging bullies, love affairs with the land and its people, and near death by frostbite and heat stroke, the absurd hilarity and clear, tender voice found within this story navigates a surreal road paved by the experiences of one man. Author of nationally acclaimed and locally banned novels "Crum" and "Screaming with the Cannibals," Lee Maynard details an imaginative account of his journey through seventy years of hard living from West Virginia, to Mexico, the Arctic Circle, and beyond. Scattered and hallucinated, "The Pale Light of Sunset" grants a long-awaited glimpse into the bent condition of the Maynard brain. "
