Charles Bowden {format} 22:41 Scott Carrier

A portrait of the non-fiction writer Charles Bowden, told by the people he's written about and the editors he's worked with. Bowden lives in Tucson, Arizona, and has written extensively on the cultural and physical environment of the Southwest. His style is both harsh and beautiful, and somewhat painful to read, as he takes the position that we are all to blame, or perhaps that there is no one is to blame, for the violent and destructive acts committed against nature and society. He writes about child molestors, drug traffickers, savings and loan executives, real estate developers, and crooked politicians in a way that implicates all of us.
