  • late in his newest book, a nice piece of astoria, matt love recounts moving to the oregon coast some 18 years ago (see also: gimme refuge: the education of a caretaker) as "perhaps the boldest decision of my life a last ditch effort to become an oregonian of merit." having authored/edited 13 books about oregon, received the stewart h. holbrook literary legacy award ("in recognition of significant contributions that have enriched oregon’s literary community"), and founded a press (nestucca spit [...]


  • Bad puns aside, a nice cutesy narrative non-fiction piece about the Pacific Northwest. It captures some of the rough-and-ready tone of the PNW coast, and really not too bad to read during the height of a Tucson summer.


  • "Son of a bitch! A tourist couple had usurped my favorite writing table by the window, the one with the view of the Megler Bridge, which is clearly a man, just as the Yaquina Bay Bridge is clearly a woman. Imagine the offspring of that union." -13"Other factors saved Astoria from becoming Coos Bay:ree or four marijuana dispensaries with many more coming because city fathers from nearby municipalities were too drunk to welcome marijuana". -16-7"We the people of Astoriaedge to:* Never abandon the [...]


  • It's always fun to read about a place that is close to your heart. It's also quite entertaining to hear the perspective of someone else who obviously loves the place as much as you do. Love's eye for the wet, the odd, the lesser known & the lewd parts of Astoria had me smiling & laughing out loud, knowing exactly what he was talking about. Poking fun at the hipsters that frequent Astoria was also amusing, however Love's admittance that he is/was one himself could have been admitted to ea [...]


  • waste of the beautiful trees that were cut down to print this. it's like this guy visited once. and the cover? phallic much?


  • Received this as a gift from my brother as payment for babysitting (How many times I had to sit through The Dark Knight!) - and he had come into possession of it himself as a gift from one of the real life characters in the travel guide (namedrop alert): the Robert E. Lee Window Washer.I enjoyed it for what it was, y'know? It's by no means exhaustive - not one mention of Pig N' Pancake! I mean, their biscuits and gravy and silver dollar pancakes and milkshakes: wow, or Bach N' Rock (CD, albums, [...]


  • I stole this book from the lobby of the Commodore Hotel in Astoria. I figured it was okay since they had a small stack of them on the Library's shelves.I didn't know what I was in for, thinking that it was probably a walking guide for tourists who hated tours and guides. Like myself.Turns out, the book is one resident writer's attempt at capturing the essence of the city he loves. I can appreciate that as well as the twists and turns he takes to get from Astoria's (and his book's) Alpha to its O [...]


  • Given that I live in the town this novel is about and that I know the author/publisher, I don't think it is entirely fair that I give the book a proper review (hence the average three stars, and the brevity of this entry). Sufficed to say I enjoyed it and its sense of humor.


  • Wonderfully written book about the corners and citizens of Astoria, Oregon. I hope I recognize Mr. Love someday, walking around town, and have enough fortitude to go up and introduce myself. We will both be laved in rain, preferably.


  • Enticing Astoria? Read Matt Love and see what you think. (Actually, just read Matt Love for this fabulously unique take on Oregon culture and history.)
