Literary Nonfiction. Using his Denver apartment as a central locale, Erik Anderson walked a path that traced the letters Pastoral between February and March 2007. Navigating the various curves and corners of the city streets, Anderson charts the experiences of a writer in a man-made environment. Explorative, adventurous, and insightful, Anderson's meditations serve as a compelling social and aesthetic commentary.
