Product description


"A small masterpiece...Kauffman is a romantic reactionary, a writer with an odd, energetic optimism." --Gore Vidal

"There is myth and poetry in this refreshing look at a town....Kauffman is one of the most original journalistic voices in America today." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"An acerbically sentimental account of [Kauffman's] experience that reveals both his fascination and frustration with small-town life." --Star-Tribune (Minneapolis)

"Those born in a small town will know what he means and probably envy him for having had the gumption to go back home." --The Wall Street Journal

About the Author

Bill Kauffman has written for The Independent in London and The Wall Street Journal. Although Batavia remains his psychic home, he now resides five miles away in Elba, New York.
