Abstract

Western American Literature Fall 2012 fresh and often pointed. Riding Shotgun's best moments portray our knack as humans to talk at one another rather than with one another, offering only brief, albeit treasured, windows for a handful of characters to shine a light of good will on their fellows. Tillie Olsen: One Woman, Many Riddles. By Panthea Reid. new Brunswick, nJ: Rutgers University Press, 2010. 484 pages, $26.95. Reviewed by Susanne George Bloomfield University of nebraska, Kearney Tillie Olsen is a legend in western American literature for her depictions of life in the West, particularly the harsh conditions of working people's lives in the 1930s, and for her support of scholars in their efforts to bring to light voices that have been previously silenced. For this, the Western Literature Association awarded her the Distinguished Achievement Award in 1996. Thus, Panthea Reid's ten-year odyssey in writing a definitive biography of this enigmatic woman has been long awaited by western literature and history scholars alike. Tillie Olsen: One Woman, Many Riddles will delight readers with its disclosure of previously unknown facts about Olsen.
