Since its first publication in 2005, Bruce Coffin's beautifully written account of growing up in Woodstock, Vermont, in the 1950s has become a New England classic. The details of life in a typical Vermont village ? the work places and stores, the sports and pastimes, the landscape, and most of all the people ? are affectionately recalled in a Proustian feat of memory and imagination. In these unexpected details the essence of a complex, microcosmic world is recaptured and brought back to life.
