Gary Barwin is, well, a lot of things. Aurthor, poet, composer, artist, Phd, teacher. Basically, so talented that I find myself mildly annoyed by his talent. His latest book is called Nothing the Same-Everything Haunted, (The Ballad of Motl the Cowboy). It has Jews, Lthuanians, Nazis, fake Indians, fake cowboys and many brilliant and heart arresting plot twists. Please enjoy, if there is such a thing.
