Excellent slice of nostalgia,

This review is from: The Country of the Pointed Firs (Paperback)
This took me back to a time small towns were self-contained and unique, where everyone knew each other from 'way back,' support and understanding in times of trouble lived just next door, the natural world was just an enjoyable short stroll from home, and everyone in town knew about, and cared deeply about, everyone else's business.
Such a close (-d) community is portrayed here as comforting, rather than claustrophobic. The eccentricities and foibles of each individual person are not only tolerated, but actually treasured as evidence of their individual personalities.
