About


Donald Zochert: Along the Way

I spent my youth with a typewriter: Reporter, rewriteman, desk editor, Chicago Daily News, United Press International; biographer of Laura Ingalls Wilder; author of several novels, including Yellow Dogs; monograph on literary culture in old Milwaukee; essays in Isis, Chicago History, James Joyce Quarterly,Transactions of the Wisconsin Academy, Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society, Western American Literature, elsewhere.

These are my specimen days, photographed along the way. I'm not sure whether I photograph what I see or what I wish to see--"we seek the great forgotten language, the lost lane-end into heaven, a stone, a leaf, an unfound door..." I had a teacher once who told me I’d get over it. But I didn’t.
