THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

by ANDREW TRAVERS

THEATER DUNCAN SHEIK and Steven Sater took Broadway by storm in 2006 with “Spring Awakening,” their groundbreaking rock musical that went on to win eight Tony Awards — including Best Musical — and ran through 2009. This month the pair has been in Aspen workshopping their latest collaboration: “Alice By Heart.” The new musical is based on Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” and offers a modern take on the classic story of young Alice going down the rabbit hole and into a fantasy world. On Saturday, May 31, they bring the in-progress play to the stage at the Wheeler Opera House. Sheik, the singersongwriter behind the ubiquitous 1990s hit “Barely Breathing,” has been in the studio at the Red Brick working with a cast of up-andcoming Broadway actors, along with director Lear deBessonet (“Good Person of Szechwan”) and choreographer Chase Brock (“Spiderman: Turn off the Dark”). The residency kicks off Theatre Aspen’s New Play Development Series, an initiative aiming to use Aspen as an incubator for new stage works. The Wheeler event promises to give Aspen audiences a peek into the creative process, showcasing some of the show’s scenes and musical numbers before “Alice By Heart” blooms into a full production. Saturday’s performance starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and available at the Wheeler box office and www. aspenshowtix.com.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

VOX POP What do you miss most about being a kid?

with JOHN COLSON

Simply Orange? Well, simplify this, CocaCola MUCH AS I HATE to admit it, I too often am basically a good little consumer of American goods. I try not to be, but end up buying all sorts of claptrap and garbage churned out by factories that once were just across town but now, thanks to the insane march of globalization, are found in foreign lands as often as not. As a case in point, I direct the reader’s attention to a product known as Simply Orange, put out by the CocaCola/ MinuteMaid corporate combine and sold by grocers throughout the land. Mine, like so many others, is a tale woven through with threads of inattentiveness and sloth, twin evils of our modern condition from which I only recently awakened, thanks to a word from the young son of a friend of mine whose attention to detail was a little quicker than mine. Put simply, my young friend chose not to simply believe the marketing folderol surrounding Simply Orange, and actually checked it out. Now, I stopped believing in broadtarget advertisements decades ago, with the understanding that Mad Men (ad executives of the Madison Avenue variety) are paid ridiculous amounts of money to fool me about what it is they want me to wear, eat, drink, drive, smoke and smear on my body to prevent sunburn, among other things. We live in the premier consumerbased nation on Earth, these here United States of America, and commerce is our God of choice. The old God is still around, of course, but it’s just not the same as it was when religion was the sole option for those seeking reasons for our existence and our behavior. These days, our need for instant gratification has stripped that old God of much of its power, and replaced it with a yearning for whatever we are told we want or need by the ads that define our existence now. When my spousal unit first discovered Simply Orange at our local grocery store, I was happy. The stuff tasted good, and the label said it contained nothing but the juice of that noble fruit, and I believed. Or, rather, I thought no further. It turns out, though, that this product, like so many others we are trained and forced to buy, is not “simply” the juice, but actually is a “hyper-engineered and dauntingly industrial product,” in the words of an online article about the matter. Simply Orange, in reality, is a much-

processed beverage that is radically deconstructed from its original form, shipped from the groves of Florida and Brazil as a near-tasteless liquid and then reconstructed with some added flavor-enhancing ingredients that have nothing at all to do with nature or sunshine. This, then, is what my young friend discovered, and I confirmed through my own Internet searches. According to a study done more than a decade ago by the Bloomberg Businesswire news service, the juice in question is based on a complicated, computer-driven recipe contained in CocaCola’s “Black Book” of methodology. Once the juice is mashed from the fruit, according to engineer Bob Cross, who invented this Black Book, it is stored in silos and piped underground to the packaging plant, where is it put through a process known as “flash pasteurization.” Basically, that means it is superheated to 165 degrees Fahrenheit or more, thereby killing off just about any bacteria still present in the juice, including any good bacteria. It is then piped to storage tanks where it is slowly agitated, sucked clear of its oxygen content, and covered with a nitrogen gas blanket to keep out any more oxygen, since oxygen causes the juice to spoil. It can then be stored for a year or more and, when needed, is recombined with “flavor packets” designed to bring back all of the 600 or so distinct flavors that were driven from the juice during processing. After all that, it is bottled and shipped to the shelves of grocery stores, and into our waiting grocery baskets. The study tells us that these flavor enhancers are, in some vague chemical way, connected to the real flavors that were stripped from the juice early on. But what we get in our glass is as far as can be imagined from being the fresh juice of a freshly-picked orange. So, once again, we are misled into thinking we are buying something wholesome and good, but in reality are just buying another big lie. Which is why we no longer buy Simply Orange, preferring to spend considerably more of our hard-earned cash on a product in which we have greater faith, an organic juice made by “Uncle Matt” in Cleremont, Fla. And that, I have to say, was my lesson for May.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

Building water diversion tunnels: a job for the Depression’s itinerant workers.

DEPRESSION DRIFTERS During the early years of the Depression, drifters who came to

Aspen found jobs: they were hired to divert the Roaring Fork under the mountain to the east side of the Continental Divide. The project, a 4-mile long tunnel, also attracted “tramp miners” and took years to complete. Tramp miners were not a symptom of the Depression. As is true of many young men, some miners were driven by wanderlust and a few acted so cantankerous that they created ill will in mine boarding houses and were coaxed into leaving. Although metal prices fell during the Depression, mining jobs could be had; however, many came to an end upon the completion of a tunnel or the depletion of an ore body. As a result, a number of miners tramped from mining camp to mining camp. Often construction workers and miners arrived in Aspen with little or no money, and the rates at the Jerome, the only operating hotel in town, exceeded the means of the penniless. One day a man nicknamed “Lord Harrington” arrived with the workers and quickly solved the housing problem. Harrington, who had done so in other mining camps, purchased an

known as Madam Peewee’s. Aspen had hosted a red light district at one time, but by 1930 it had dimmed to a memory and taken its place in the history of the major mining years. However Leadville, an open city during prohibition, was still home to its share of professional ladies, and

eventually Madam Peewee rented an old two-story house near Wagner Park and moved her high-altitude Leadville operation down mountain to Aspen. Before the community could catch its collective breath to raise an outcry against the business, the house caught fire. The fire department saved most of the structure, but it was no longer habitable, so Madam Peewee and her staff returned to Leadville. Men, being men, contrived a conspiracy theory to explain the incident. They put out the word that Madam, in all her entrepreneurial wisdom, had advertised a “fire sale.” Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective.

ON MARCH 22, 1951, The Aspen Daily Times ran an article concerning the fate of the house built by Henry B. Gillespie, which was located on the northeast corner of Aspen and Hallam streets. According to the paper, “whether or not to destroy the historic ‘Ghost House’ in Aspen, built in 1881 by H. B. Gillespie, father of Aspen, is a hot controversy between those interested in preserving the home and those interested in providing a playground for Aspen’s school children. The Ghost House, or Seager property, was recently given to the school by Walter P. Paepcke, present owner, to be torn down, and the lot made into a school playground. ….” Not long after this article ran, restoration of the old house was ruled out due to lack of funding and its condition, and it was torn down. The photo above shows the house in better days, circa 1900. This photo and more can be found in the Aspen Historical Society archives at aspenhistory.org.

GEAR of the WEEK

BY STEPHEN RENEGOLD

ON THE EDGE: HIGH-END ‘SAILCLOTH’ GEAR

CRISP CORNERS, ZIGZAG STITCHING, and with a slick outer material that lets it slide into the tightest of pants pockets, my new wallet from RAGGEDedge Gear is definitely different. Ditto for the duffel bag: The brand’s Airstream model bag is the shape of its namesake camping trailer, though the futuristic case is made from material used on yacht sails. Founded by a group of competitive sailors, the products from RAGGEDedge stand out in a sea of sameness. The company (www. raggededgeproducts.com) designs luggage tags, sunglass cases, checkbook covers, bags, and billfolds — categories that do not often see innovation. But by using technical sailcloth as their base fabric, the products are both strong and functional. They are good-looking and unique enough to be described as artsy. Caveat: The prices (to keep with the nautical theme) are slightly off the charts. For $65, the brand’s Bifold ID wallet is advertised to last a decade or more with hard daily use. Mine is a month old but still shiny, crisp and new. The wallet’s durability comes from a carbon-fiber laminate sailcloth material and strong, “triple-step” stitching, as the company calls it. The duffel bag is even pricier, at an off-thedeep-end cost of $375. I am not sure why it’s so much money, but for what it’s worth the duffel is neat: Its flexible, waterproof material is slick to the touch and semi-translucent, letting light glow through. Big-tooth zippers seal it up, and there’s a neoprene pad on the handle straps for grip. The bag is strong and can carry heavy loads.

GET IT

You can hose it off if dirty — mud and grime cannot easily stick to the sailcloth bottom. In the end, the products from RAGGEDedge, all handmade in a Floyd, Va., studio, lean far into the “artisanal” end of the outdoor equipment spectrum. I love that the crew is pushing limits with design and material types — despite the fact that I don’t have the “clams” to afford most of what they sell.

WINEINK

RED WILLOW. A GREAT AMERICAN VINEYARD. CALL ME CRAZY, but of all the things about wine that bring me joy, none compare to a run through a great vineyard. I will lace up my shoes, try and find someone to get permission from and then, permission or not, head out with a smile, amongst the vines. Like skiing Aspen Mountain or surfing Malibu, there are iconic vineyards that, KELLY J. to those who love wine HAYES and the vines that make them, demand a pilgrimage. And I have had the great good fortune to get dust on my running shoes from many of them. From Romanee Conte in Burgundy to the Magill Estate in Australia, and from New Zealand’s Gimblett Gravels to the Greppo Vineyards at Biondi Santi to the Martini’s Monte Rosso in Sonoma, I have trotted — with respect and awe. As I run through the rows of vines, I note how the grapes are trained, how the rows are planted, how the clusters are bunched, how the soils are either rocky or sandy, clean or congested. These runs are the times when I feel most fully connected to the earth and its rhythms. Such was the case this past Saturday morning when I took a four-miler up and down the hills of the Red Willow vineyard on the western border of Washington State’s Yakima AVA. I had tasted the fruit of Red Willow before, largely in the wines that David O’Reilly of Owen Roe produces from the vineyard. But until I took the right turn off of the interstate and drove the 10 miles or so south through the fields of Washington’s fruit orchards I had no idea just what a special place Red Willow is. Red Willow is an oasis of green vines bordered by the golden, sagebrush covered hills of the Yakima Indian Reservation. The vineyard sits above a valley at around 1,300 feet, and provides commanding views of the orchards

below and the snow capped peak of Mt. Adams, a 12,000-foot volcano in the distance. Mt. Adams is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc, one of two geologic features responsible for the fertile geology of the region. The second was the great Missoula Flood that, 15,000 years or so ago left sandy lake soils throughout the Yakima AVA. The hill where the vineyard now sits was created by volcanic upheaval and was an island during the great floods. For years the region has been known for growing luscious apples, cherries, nectarines, peaches and plums. And while the first grapes were planted in the Yakima Valley as early as the 1860s, it was not until Mike Sauer, a third-generation potato and alfalfa farmer, planted a grape vineyard with a row or two of Chenin Blanc and Semillon, in 1970, that the future of the valley took a turn.

The Sauers have built their own Chapel as an homage to longtime friend Monsignor Mulcahy, with whom they had travelled to Europe in the 1990s when they decided to plant the steepest, rockiest hillside on the vineyard to Syrah. Using the rocks from the hill they constructed a perfect Chapel. Today that hillside hosts perhaps the most sought after Syrah in Washington state. David O’Reilly makes his “Chapel Block” Syrah from these vines. As I got to the top of the hill, sweating profusely and breathing hard, I went to the door of the Chapel.

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

BURGER QUEEN

A QUEST FOR VEGGIE VERSIONS THAT DON’T MAKE ME MISS MEAT AFTER WRAPPING UP a rigorous assignment for the new Summer 2014 issue of Aspen Sojourner — which sent me chowing down on a dozen cheeseburgers in as many days to select seven tastiest — I felt how Morgan Spurlock looked in Supersize Me. I needed to detox. (Meat-tox?) I considered a juice cleanse but knew that AMANDA a liquid diet following RAE this epic beef binge would only shock my system and make me angry. I required fuel for sweaty cardio sessions sprinkled with extra obscenity spitting. So, to ease back into healthier habits, I set out to hunt a vaguely related but different species: Veggie burgers. Turns out, there are some decent meat-free options in this town, but not many. I think that’s because making a veggie burger is far more labor intensive than patting ground meat into a disc and tossing it on a grill. Chopped and sautéed vegetables, mashed beans or other legumes, ancient grains — these core ingredients require binders, fillers, and spices to succeed in the same format. Flavoring must be bold, and all too often the finished product lacks toothsome texture. Also, as I realized upon ordering the “Tree Hugger” at Fatbelly Burgers in Carbondale recently, they’re not huge sellers where meat is king. What’s in it? I asked the mellow new dude behind the counter. “Uh, it’s got, like, mushrooms in it,” he said hesitantly. He turned his head to a coworker out of view. “And garbanzo beans.” His voice tipped up at the end, so the statement sounded like a question, which almost convinced me that I might have been the first dweeb customer to order the Tree Hugger. It took every ounce of willpower to not scratch the plan and double down on a griddle-smashed Lamb Standard instead. But I wasn’t disappointed. The turmeric-tinged patty was a bit

dense, but studded with sautéed mushrooms throughout—little juicy surprises. The edges had that signature crispy sear. It’s nothing like the best falafel I’ve ever had— tzatziki and pita are required for that—but for $4.59, I couldn’t feel slighted. I continued my mission at the spot that first sprung to mind: Spring Café. The airy, vegetarian’s paradise opened on the corner of Spring and Hopkins last summer, and I’ve sampled various items to mostly positive results. I enjoy eating animals but adore vegetables, so the Spring Café concept is my jam. Unfortunately, the veggie burger listed on the menu has always been slightly off-putting to me, as it’s composed primarily of shredded red beets. I like beets in small doses, but in the world of veggie burgers, they’re an anomaly. So when I stopped by last week to try it, I was delighted and relieved to find a lunchtime entree special: Chickpea Carrot Burger ($15; pictured above). Carrots lend mellow sweetness to this toothsome bean burger, further enhanced with caramelized onions, a leaf of Romaine, tangle of alfalfa sprouts, and plenty of avocado and tomato slices. I ditched the multigrain bun drizzled with ketchup and ate it fork-andknife style, alternating with bites of the crunchiest slaw in town. Spring Café slaw is far greater than the sum of its parts: celery, carrots, and two types of cabbage, dressed in bright, glossy citrus vinaigrette dusted with freshly cracked black pepper. The portions are generous and easy to split with a friend; throw in a smoothie with two straws and you’re one apéritif joint away from the ultimate Coloradohippie diner experience. I returned later to sample the shredded-beet Veggie Burger ($15), and my suspicions were confirmed. It’s zingy and inoffensive — if you don’t mind noshing on what looks like a patty of bloody ground beef. Beet fiends, eat your hearts out. Sure Thing Burger owner Scott Picard raves about his Veggie Burger ($8.95), and for good

reason. Health food it ain’t, but a flavor bomb filled with French green lentils, brown rice, zucchini, mushrooms, roasted corn, and sundried tomato, breaded with panko and flash fried. Order it “protein style,” wrapped in lettuce, and don’t even think about skipping the basil aioli. A condiment that tastes like summer? More, please. The Falafel Veggie Burger ($7.95) at CP Burger is served extracrunchy with LTO, tzatziki and hummus. Redundancy aside, it’s a savory, filling choice, but doesn’t quell my carnivorous craving for a spicy Chicano “Fire” Burger with green chile. Finbarr’s Irish Pub returned from its mud-season break last week, in time to refresh my happy memory of chef Joe Flamer’s Veggie Burger ($13). The vegan recipe includes brown rice, barley, red and white quinoa, and assorted veggies bound with hummus, seared, and topped with roasted red pepper aioli, kaiware-daikon and alfalfa sprout salad, and slices of fried green tomato on toasted brioche. I fed a few bites to a friend, who wrinkled his brow approvingly and bought me a drink later. “It’s like the chicken schnitzel— one of those things I can’t take off the menu,” Flamer says. Order it in

Aspen or at the second Finbarr’s on River Valley Ranch in Carbondale, boasting awesome deck views of Mount Sopris. Two more gourmet examples: Justice Snow’s chef Jonathan Leichliter’s impressive veggie and quinoa burger with cucumber, tomato, and tahini mayo ($13) and the Bibb lettuce-wrapped, Romesco-topped, Indian-spiced red lentil and sweet potato sliders at Pyramid Bistro, chef Martin Oswald’s nutritarian eatery, which reopens June 6. Finally, the aptly named “Local’s Favorite” Garden Burger ($16) at 39 Degrees Lounge at the Sky Hotel. It’s not of the frozen variety, but homemade with brown rice, lentils, spinach, and mushrooms on a wheat bun. Order it as the Sky Girls do: Topped with a chunk of blue cheese; bartender Andy McInally swears by bacon, too. Then, sit on the patio. To me there’s almost nothing hotter than a topless dude or babe in a bikini, catching rays by the pool — and scarfing a burger with a smile.

GUNNER’S LIBATIONS

by JEANNE MCGOVERN

NEW PLANET BEER Ask me what’s in my beer, and I’ll give you the industry standards: barley, malt, hops, yeast, etc. But really, all I care about is taste. Not everyone can say such a thing, I’ve learned. In fact, there is a whole world of people who can’t drink beer — or, more accurately, they cannot drink regular beer. I recently spent a weekend with such a person — a friend who suffers from celiac disease. I felt bad cracking open an ice cold hefeweizen after a long day of hiking, thinking she’d be stuck sipping on water. But alas, she too cracked open a beer, a gluten-free version from Boulder-based New Planet Beer. While the taste of her Raspberry Ale was different than other raspberry ales I’ve sampled, it wasn’t bad. It was sweet, but not syrupy; a good glass of summer suds. And for folks who must go gluten-free (or pay the price), I imagine it’s just about perfect. GUNILLA ASHER DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THE BARS THIS

TODAY, WE PLAY! A KIDS-EYE VIEW FROM PARADISE (AKA, PLAYGROUNDS) by JEANNE MCGOVERN

LISTEN TO THE SOUNDS: Laughter and giggles; screaming and maybe even screeching; a few whispers and the occasional whistle. These are sounds that say more than words ever will. Look at the scene: kids — lots and lots of kids — swinging and sliding, running and jumping, crawling and creating. This is a scene that reminds us of what it’s like to be a kid. Look at the landscape: green grass and wood chips below, blue skies and white clouds above. This is a landscape fit for a postcard. For kids in Aspen and Basalt, these sounds, this scene and that landscape are just a part of recess — a treasured slice of every kid’s school day. But making it become a reality is far from monkey business.

The reason, on the surface, seems simple: monkey bars, spinning things, a massive spider-web dome. And to the kids who swing, spin and climb on them, it is that simple. Which is as it should be. “I think it’s tremendously important because, first of all, children need to play — kids need curious and creative play,” says Wheeler-Del Piccolo. But how this state-of-the-art playground became a reality for Basalt Elementary School (and the entire community, which is welcome to use it at any time) is anything but simple. In fact, it took a great amount of effort — and collaboration — between the town of Basalt, parents, students, the community and so many others. “It is a very powerful story,” says Wheeler-Del Piccolo, explaining how the school’s first effort toward a major grant to fund project was ultimately denied. “But that didn’t stop the process.” Rather, it fueled the fire — bringing others into the fold. Even the youngest of students; Wheeler-Del Piccolo tells the story of a kindergartner, who wasn’t even part of the original playgroundplanning process, who told her, “I wrote a letter, and it worked!”

Indeed, these are the lessons that should be learned. The dollars and cents are important (see “By The Numbers,” previous page), but the bottom line is the kids. “Our priority is the kids,” said Dr. John Maloy, Aspen School District Superintendent, when Aspen Elementary School sought to reconstruct its playground a couple of years ago. “We are willing to invest in a plan that makes sense for our students now — and in the long run.” Fortunately, for both Aspen and Basalt, these philosophies seem to be paying off. New playgrounds are opened and there are plenty of giggles, running feet and creative playthings to be found. And while it may be cliche, there are times when a picture is worth a thousand words. This is one of those times. jmcgovern@aspentimes.com

WHY PLAY? The first playground in the United States was built in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park in 1887. Recognizing the need for playgrounds, former President Theodore Roosevelt stated in 1907: “City streets are unsatisfactory playgrounds for children because of the danger, because most good games are against the law, because they are too hot in summer, and because in crowded sections of the city they are apt to be schools of crime. Neither do small back yards nor ornamental grass plots meet the needs of any but the very small children. Older children who would play vigorous games must have places especially set aside for them; and, since play is a fundamental need, playgrounds should be provided for every child as much as schools. This means that they must be distributed over the cities in such a way as to be within walking distance of every boy and girl, as most children can not afford to pay carfare.” Since then, playgrounds have become an integral part of the American experience. At schools across the country, playgrounds offer kids the chance to be kids. But under all the laughter, a debate bubbles: Are playgrounds —and recess — necessary in our increasingly academic world? In the Roaring Fork Valley, the answer is a resounding “YES!” — with most local preschools and elementary schools investing precious time and dollars into the research, design, installation and upkeep of state-of-the-art playgrounds. We’re not alone. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports the importance of having a scheduled break in the school day. “Children need to have downtime between complex cognitive challenges,” says Dr. Robert Murray, a pediatrician and professor of human nutrition at the Ohio State University who co-authored a statement in the journal Pediatrics. “They tend to be less able to process information the longer they are held to a task. It’s not enough to just switch from math to English. You actually have to take a break.”

WILDWOOD SCHOOL THESE ARE THE LAST of the photos from the spring benefit for the Wildwood School held at Plato’s Restaurant at the Aspen Meadows. The Wildwood School is a magical pre-school for children located up Independence Pass before the Difficult Campground. The MARY buildings are rounded ESHBAUGH domes just like troll HAYES houses and there are woods all around. Undercurrent...Next week is the beginning of June and all the summer activities in Aspen will begin.

FIGURES OF SPEECH ANDERSON RANCH consistently attracts crowds to its Snowmass Village campus for its Featured Artist Series, with a lineup of internationally renowned artists giving free presentations at Schermer Meeting Hall. This year’s lineup includes the likes of installation artist Theaster Gates and photographer Catherine Opie. Less well-known, however, is the Ranch’s guest faculty lecture series, which begins June 1 and runs through September. The series offers the public a taste of the wide spectrum of artists who come to Snowmass to teach workshops in the summer. This year it brings a diverse lineup of more than 50 artists working across mediums to the ranch, for free presentations every Sunday and Tuesday. The series opens Sunday with talks by furniture designer and Anderson Ranch studio coordinator Jason Schneider along with Utah-based sculptor Ryoichi Suzuki. Originally from Tokyo, Suzuki is a professor at Utah State University. He works stone, wood and bronze into minimalist sculptures. In June, he’s teaching a workshop on wood sculpture at the Ranch. “I will be talking about sculpture in general and the subtractive method in particular,” Suzuki says of his presentation. “That includes wood carving, but I also work with stone a lot and I’ll talk about working in bronze. … Each medium has its own attraction.” This is Suzuki’s first time teaching at Anderson Ranch, though he’s visited previously and often brought his sculpture students from Utah to attend marble-carving symposia in nearby Marble. The laid back communal artistic spirit at Anderson Ranch, he says, is a welcome change from the often competitive spirit of a college campus. “The feeling I get at Anderson Ranch is that it’s a very relaxed atmosphere and people are having fun

F

trying different things,” he says. “The university is very different because students are trying to get a degree and it’s not relaxed. I demand students [at Utah State] work as hard as possible. I don’t think I will take that approach with the students at Anderson Ranch.” The series continues on Tuesday with Jamaican potter David Pinto and Brooklyn-based painter Christian Rex van Minnen.

Ma y 29 - Jun e 4, 2014

Pinto is teaching a pottery workshop with longtime Ranch ceramicist Doug Casebeer for the first two weeks of June. Pinto is among Jamaica’s leading ceramic artists, and has previously taught at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan. Van Minnen, a former artist-inresidence at the Ranch, has earned an international reputation for his surrealistic

paintings, offering hallucinatory takes on classic portraits and still-lifes. Tuesday evening also includes the opening reception for a new show at the Ranch’s Patton-Malott Gallery, featuring new work by Mary Conover and Nancy Lovendahl. atravers@aspentimes.com

BOOK REVIEW

‘LITTLE RAW SOULS’ IN HIS LATEST SHORT story collection, Steven Schwartz, a Colorado State University creative writing teacher, goes inside the heads of his characters and deftly follows them as they walk various moral tightropes. Among his subjects in the closely observed stories in “Little Raw Souls” are a woman robbed while flirting in an airport bar while her flight is delayed, a man duped by hippies staying on his property, and a teacher facing a mental breakdown. They’re set in the contemporary American west, shedding light on some little-explored corners of Colorado and the region. Schwartz’s style is smooth and unfussy, with clear and straightforward prose that leaves a lot below the surface and trusts the reader to find it. In patiently paced stories, Schwartz builds suspense and character simultaneously

without sacrificing either. Among the standout stories is “Galisteo Street,” which opens with Ben, a writer — there are a handful or writers and teachers among Schwartz’s cast of characters — learning he has become a grandfather. The baby’s mother is Ben’s estranged daughter, the product of a short-lived relationship with an erratic woman who herself was the daughter of a famous novelist. Ben used their relationship as fodder for a memoir, which was panned by critics and ended his writing career along with his father-daughter relationship. Schwartz fills in that backstory as Ben sets out to meet his new grandchild in Santa Fe, N.M., steadily raising the stakes for the reader. He runs into an old writing student of his in Santa Fe and flashes back on his many missteps as a writer,
