Early on in Richard Heller’s anecdotal and picaresque Blueprints, Heller’s protagonist, Alan, must ride and break a dangerous rearing horse; when they fall to the earth, Alan, unhurt, leans close to the horse and whispers: “You can no longer do this and I’m going to stay with you and help you.” and so Alan does-with this wayward horse. And so Richard Heller does-with this feral wild child of a book until with the help of a variety of beloved horses, dogs, the great outdoors, a woman, a child, a house, and a remarkable array of American and Scottish friends, Alan finds his way back to the path. A path filled with the complexity of resentment and passion, rebellion and tenderness, where a wounded man, still searching, is on his heartfelt journey, headed home.
