As with his first novel, BAKER CITY, 1948, George Byron Wright once again has taken a devastating historical event and expertly woven a tale of intrigue around it. TILLAMOOK, 1952 is about one man's blazing search for the truth - in his hometown, in his class-conscious family, and deep within his own hardened heart. You won't be disappointed with this story.

In TILLAMOOK 1952, George Wright tells a compelling tale of the searing scars left on our psyches and our souls when we dehumanize others be it the enemy in war or the disfigured in our daily midst. On the surface a young man embarks on a search to understand the circumstances of his uncle's death but his real quest is to free his soul from his inability to love, a legacy from his own war-scarred father. Wright tells the story with great narrative skill and careful attention to historical detail and place. The book is a fast read but it should be read carefully as it is timeless in its theme of how reluctantly we give up the enameled shell that keeps us from facing the truth within ourselves.
