View: 1456He's stalking me through the woods. Hunting me down as though I'm his prey. I don't know exactly what he wants, but the desire in his eyes means I can take a good guess. I'm the object of his lust, and once he's caught me, he intends to have me. Is he going to hurt me? I think he might. One thing is for sure - I'm in for a wild ride. ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~ “I have a plan. You mentioned your cabin in a post the other day, right? Why don’t you pick me up at my dorm room around midnight? Kidnap me. I’ll be outside in a T-shirt and my blue jogging shorts. Of course, I’ll have a gym bag with me with clean clothes in it for when we’re done. But you pull up in your jeep and ask if I need a ride or if I’m waiting on someone. Something like that so I know it’s you. Then, when I start to walk away, you follow me. I’ll drop my bag and start to run. I hope you can run, because you’ll have to catch me. Oh, and bring rope or tape, something to tie me up with, or else I might get away. “Still with me? I hope so, because I think you’re going to like where this is going. God, I want you to tear me apart! “Once you catch me, drag me kicking and screaming back to your jeep. Throw me in the back and tie me up so I can’t get away. And don’t forget my bag!”

View: 3468David Adams Richards takes us behind his gun and into the Canadian forest for his most powerful work of non-fiction yet. In his brilliant non-fiction, David Adams Richards - first and foremost one of Canada's greatest and best-beloved novelists - has been writing a kind of memoir by other means. Like his previous titles Lines On Water, about his pursuit of angling, and Hockey Dreams, about the game his disabled body prevented him from playing, Facing the Hunter explores the meaning of a sport and the way in which it touches lives, not least that of the author. And as with God Is, his recent book about his faith, it is also an impassioned defence of a set of values and a way of life that Richards believes are under attack. Lovers of David Adams Richards' novels will be fascinated and enlightened to note the interplay between his former life as a keen hunter - he hunts less and less these days, as he explains - and the narratives and characters of his fiction. But this is also a perfect starting point for anyone coming new to Richards. The storytelling in this book, the evocation of the Canadian wild and those who venture into it, the sheer power of the prose, show a great writer at the height of his powers. From the Hardcover edition.
