Part of the fun of getting away from it all, for a writer, is sending stories back to the people who haven't escaped the city rush. Chris Bohjalian, a writer formerly based in Brooklyn, now resides in tiny Lincoln, Vermont, where he writes a weekly column about small-town life. This collection of columns brings to life such experiences as the Pinewood Derby, trips to the general store, and a town meeting. His writings also cover more serious events in his life and the life of his town, such as his mother's death and the flooding of the library. Bohjalian reads with a gentle, self-deprecating tone--engaging, but occasionally sounding a bit too surprised by his new home. These glimpses of country life are a pleasant diversion for hectic days.
