The subjects in The Hunter Gracchus, whether books or people or observations from Davenport’s journal, can include anything from the great writer Franz Kafka, author of the short story The Hunter Gracchus, to the drunk redneck, detailed in a section of the Micrographs piece, who Davenport witnessed being tossed off a bus when the hillbilly would not stop messing around with a. woman passenger’s hair. Open to another piece at random, this one titled On Reading.

The Hunter Gracchus does indeed cover a wide array of literary and artistic subjects, ranging from short stories by Kafka to those of Donald Barthelme, from Shaker furniture to Picasso's Guernica. Yet Davenport's approach is anything but varied. Every chapter is made up of a muddle of speculations about artistic influence; beginning with arcane anecdotes and ending in vague superlatives, they rarely support a new idea from the author himself.

Hardly the typical essay collection, The Hunter Gracchus is better described as a collage of ideas, commentary, and criticism from an eclectic stylist whose sentences ring with clarity and originality. Moving effortlessly from snake handling to Wallace Stevens, these essays take delight in an immense range of topics, including art and architecture, religion, and literature. In one essay, Davenport recalls a lunch with Thomas Merton at the Ramada Inn, where Merton, already the world's most famous Trappist monk, drank several martinis and held forth on the architecture of Buddhist temples. In another, Davenport finds in postwar modernism a catalogue of our lost innocence. In the stunning title essay, he maps out the world of a posthumously published story by Franz Kafka.
