Barry Gifford velop the film. It was a do-nothing job, as are most military jobs, and I mostly stayed in the office playing chess with my officemate.

He was my god, and I used to go and stare through the gates at the inmates, trying to see him, but never did.

Great book!!!!

The reason LANDSCAPE WITH TRAVELLER surprised me was that I was only familiar with Barry Gifford's Sailor and Lula novels, such as WILD AT HEART. I was unprepared for this gentle portrait of a man looking back on his life.
LANDSCAPE is told as a series of musing, not in precise chronological order, of events in one man's life. They are not deep, or inventive. They only describe glimpses into his history, but when taken as a whole, the effect is quietly devestating. Nothing really happens of any importance, but not everyone leads a remarkable life. By the end, it is shown that it is how the life is led that is important, not what happens in it.
