Homespun humor about the way we live, from the pleasant futility of salmon fishing and the joys of Halloween, to quiet afternoons with soap opera families and endless nights in pursuit of trivia Tom Bodett, humorist, radio star, and pitchman for Motel 6, lives and writes in Homer, Alaska, the little town in the blue Northwest where America stops, carwise. "If you got into your car in New York," he says, "and wanted to take a nice long drive, I mean the longest drive you could without turning around or running into a foreign language, this is where you'd wind up." It's a place of moose and salmon and spectacular sunsets, but, Bodett insists, it's also small-town America, a place not all that different from the Michigan town of his youth. That's why he's made it his home: it perfectly suits his contrary appetites for the extreme and the everyday, for the rigors of the outdoor life and the mundane joys of the family circle. As Far As You Can Go Without a Passport, Bodett's first collection of casual essays, contains pieces on everything from trapping, tree cutting, and halibut fishing, to soap operas, lost socks, and sleeping in. It's guaranteed to please both the renegade and the homebody in every reader.… (mere)

humerous skethes of life in Alaska

Short and sweet, and a little more wise than one would expect from someone tagged with the word 'folksy.' This can be considered the first book of a series, with [b:Small Comforts: More Comments And Comic Pieces|1374158|Small Comforts More Comments And Comic Pieces|Tom Bodett|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348601645s/1374158.jpg|1364045] second, and [b:The End of the Road|1808594|The End of the Road|Tom Bodett|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1329602126s/1808594.jpg|457412] third. Of course they do stand alone, but since the anecdotes are drawn from life, if one reads in order one can see more about the life of the author in order, as for example his development as a parent.

I do have all three and suspect this review will be basically copied to each as I finish reading them in the next few days. ( )

I've read and hugely enjoyed some of Bodett's other titles, especially his fiction, so I was a bit let down by this, his first published collection of essays. Fleetingly entertaining, I suppose, as would be appropriate for radio. His other End of the Road books deal much more with the neighbors and denizens, and I think that's where he shines. I can let this copy go, as I won't re-visit it. ( )

Tom Bodett's first book is a collections of essays about everyday life, or at least as everyday as life can be in a small Alaskan town. The pieces are light and funny. An easy and amusing read. ( )
