A Reading by Wesley Gibson
In March of 2004, Wesley Gibson visited the Blackbird office to read from You Are Here: A Memoir of Arrival (Back Bay Books, 2004). Randy Marshall, reviewing You Are Here in this issue of Blackbird, writes: "Having had the pleasure of long talks with the author . . . I can assure you he is here in the pages of this book, in the voice that emanates from each argument, shaping the terse, episodic prose of his personal experience into a story based less on the ebb and flow of day to day than on the slow accumulation and rearrangement of sympathies and rituals we grasp all too imperfectly as his life (the book) sweeps us along."
