lareviewofbooks:

“How much can we bear?” Nathan Deuel on the big questions behind Ken Ilgunas’s first book, Walden on Wheels, about recovering from student loan debt:

Ilgunas does not join the army, nor does he work at a slaughterhouse, nor does he become unrecognizable. Instead, he takes charge, first with a job at a remote camp in Alaska called Coldfoot, above the Arctic Circle, a terrain so majestic it “ought to be introduced with the sounding of a Chinese gong.” Then he lives in a van. And then he writes a book.

Read the whole review here.

Note to self: read this book.
