Dodge County Fair
DODGE COUNTRY FAIR is composed of a play and short fiction. The play is set in a Midwestern village during the thirties. A family of Norwegian descent is struggling during the Great Depression. The youngest son, Joey, has the dream of going to the county fair. A stranger enters, claiming to be a long-lost relative. He changes the life of the family forever. The rest of the book consists of fifteen pieces of fiction. Some of them are about the characters in the play. Others are about animals and their effect on the lives of men. The stories take place in the early and latter Twentieth Century. Some of them are sad and bitter, but the final tale is a fantasy which takes place faraway in time and place.
