Humorist Laurie Notaro makes her fiction debut with this offbeat piece made to entertain. Maye Roberts leaves her life and friends behind in Phoenix when her husband gets a tenure-track position in the small university town of Spaulding, Washington. He adapts quickly, keeping busy and making friends in the college's English Department. It's not so easy for a 30-something freelance writer to rebuild a social network. Susan Denaker tells the story in an understated tone. Denaker uses humor and spice to navigate through Maye's aborted attempts to fit in with vegans, Wiccans, and recyclers on her journey to acceptance.
