Our Gal Someday

Our Gal Someday: A Scalar Signature Western

Cover_galSomedayIt takes a master craftsman to weave the disparate themes of aliens among us, exploitation of open spaces in the West, a classic “fish out of water” tale, and the charming quirks of a small Western town into a coherent story, but Jusczyk does it admirably. If you have ever lived in the west, you’ll find some of the characters familiar. If you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. And if that isn’t enough, at the core of this story is how the main character, Curt Wick, comes to lose himself, find himself, and define himself. It’s not just a physical journey Wick makes from Wisconsin to New Mexico, he also travels a spiritual path, accompanied by companions at once delightful and intense. And by the way– this book is really witty and funny… you may find yourself laughing out loud, like I did. My one complaint about “Our Gal Someday” is that the chapters are very long. Fortunately, Jusczyk does stop to take a breath once in a while, so you can find a place for your bookmark. Frank Jusczyk asks the reader to look just a little more closely at who and what we are… while making us feel concurrently right at home and sometimes terribly lost in our own world.
