by Robert OlmsteadProbably my favorite book.Definitely my favorite Olmstead, and he's probably my favorite writer so you do the math. Few writers have captured New England in all its schizophrenic glory as well as Olmstead.This is his brashest, and yet in some ways his most delicate book.Everything his future books and past short stories cover is here but in it's rawest form.If you think New England is John Irving and Dennis Lehane then you should read some Olmstead.This is the New England you find when you leave Boston and the safety of a college campus.Real people, from chain saw wielding swamp yankees to idealistic hippies and everything in between.
Tragically out of print and definitely worth picking up for next to nothing on Amazon.
