Eustace Conway, who took to the woods at age 17, makes fire with sticks, lives in a teepee, and wears clothes made of animal skins. Is he an American countercultural heor or a maladjusted self-promoter who moved to the Appalachian Mountains and acquired massive acreage to avoid confronting his shortcomings? Elizabeth Gilbert, a friend of Conway, explores these--and other--questions in THE LAST AMERICAN MAN, a fascinating examination of Conway. Patricia Kalember's reading is thoroughly in sync with the author's feminine perspective on Conway. Kalember gives life to Conway, and the legions of people drawn to him, most of whom are eventually repelled by his personality. She is particularly adept at conveying the tortuous relationship between Eustace and his antagonistic, unloving father and his inability to deal with women, whom he perceives as mates who should obey his every word.
