This is Matt Love's contemplative musings on rain. Will it make you a lover of rain?

Matt Love's writing has helped renew my love for the Oregon Coast. This is his self-proclaimed attempt to write the greatest book on rain in the history of Oregon literature.

Matt Love has become something of the unofficial poet laureate of Oregon, writing about the Blazers, the making of "Sometimes a Great Notion," the Vortex 1 festival, and the Oregon coast, where he's lived and taught for years. This impressionistic, free-wheeling, conversational book is, as the title indicates, about rain, a subject every Oregonian, both native and transplant, knows something about. Arranged as a sort of journal, Love doesn't follow any particular path, but his observations and anecdotes are usually wry and amusing, although as someone who slogged though Kesey's "Sometimes a Great Notion," I'm sure I'll grant it the status of "the greatest book on rain in the history of Oregon literature." Fun fact: I had a government class with him when he taught high school.
