“What a gem of a book!”
~Priscilla Howe, author of Clever, Kind, Tricky, & Sly

“. . . will quench every reader’s thirst for good storytelling.”
~Hal Zina Bennett,
author of Write From the Heart

“Both plain-spoken and poetic.”
~Katrina Vandenberg,
author of  The Alphabet Not Unlike the World and Atlas: Poems

“Each story is crisp and complete . . . great pleasure!”
~Mary Howe, Ph.D.

Eleven Directions explores what must be one of the world’s quirkiest lessons in orienteering, which perhaps explains how Gilkeson negotiated the real-life experiences that made these stories possible. Questions abound: What’s behind the mystery of his father’s missing uvula? Are these stories real or fictional? Are they memoirs with more than a few embellishments? It hardly matters because they hold the power to entertain and even enlighten us, the way good stories should. The titles of Gilkeson’s narratives by themselves lure us in. Where, exactly, is Topeka on the Danube, and who are the members of The Green Tea Cult? Who are Ms. Transylvania and Mr. Haircut? All of these stories deliver wonderful reading experiences. Gilkeson’s narrative voice creates the illusion that he’s right there with us, enjoying our pleasure in the stories he tells.
