Oil Notes Pa

Rick Bass. Mariner Books, $8.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-395-53844-9

In journal-form entries, Bass relates oil to life--certain that neither will last forever; he reflects on his relationships with his family and his career. ``With the awareness and eye of a naturalist and a writer's gift with language, he offers a low-key, upbeat work that celebrates youthful energy and optimism,'' stated PW.
