An article about Wilderness

I came across an article about Wilderness online in a journal called Colloquy—“Alice and the Wolf: Exploring Dennis Danvers’ Wilderness.” It’s by Peter C. Coleman. As a refugee from scholarship myself, it was a very weird sensation to read a scholarly article about my work, expecially a novel I wrote so long ago, so that the quoted passages were almost like reading a novel written by someone else. The article is really quite good, especially his discussion of the pivotal scene involving Alice, the Wolf, and Debra. I didn’t much like what he had to say about the ending, but who am I to complain? If you really want to see a botch job on the ending of the story, may I suggest the tv/film adaptation which gave me a migraine the first and only time I watched the whole thing.
