Bill Engleson – update on a new collection of essays

Bill Engleson was previously featured on Reading Recommendations in Jan. 2014. He’s back now to tell us about a collection of essays he’s recently published.


Confessions of an Inadvertently Gentrifying Soul
by Bill Engleson
Published by Silver Bow Publishing
Genre: Non-fiction, essays

Confessions of an Inadvertently Gentrifying Soul is a series of rollicking tales from a “newbie” retiring to a small rural island.

Villified almost from day one as “the gentry”, Bill Engleson fights back, taking a good-natured swipe at everyone and everything he encounters as he plods along, learning the ins and outs of rural living, sometimes the hard way.

Most of the chapters were originally published in the local monthly journal, The Flagstone, to mixed reviews.

After a period of “soul” searching, the author decided not to bother modifying the original pithy content, regardless of who gets offended or confused.

“They got what’s coming to them,” he retorted.

smt: I wrote a review of this book that was published in the Island Tides newspaper of Denman Island, and I posted it to reading recommendations reviewed, as well.
