A compilation of essays, based on a series of weekly columns, reflects on life in a small town in New England as it explores how America has changed over the past decade.

Blackwell North Amer
In March 1986, while living in Brooklyn, Chris Bohjalian and his wife were cab-napped on a Saturday night and taken on a forty-five-minute joy ride in which the driver ignored all traffic lights and stop signs. Around midnight he deposited the young couple on a near-deserted street, where police officers were about to storm a crack house. Bohjalian and his wife were told to hit the ground for their own protection. While lying on the pavement, Bohjalian's wife suggested that perhaps it was time to move to New England.

I thoroughly enjoy Bohjalian's novels, however, this wasn't a novel, rather columns he wrote for a local newspaper. I much prefer his novels!
