A bittersweet, seriously funny novel of a life, a small town, and a key to our troubled times traced through a newspaper columnist’s half-century of taking in, and taking on, the world
A long time newspaper columnist for a local hometown paper suffers a stroke at the age of 80. While out, the newspaper runs some of her old columns. From this we see how much has changed, the reactions from the locals, and all the things it can stir up.
The book, in my opinion made me think and I really enjoyed it. It was a light read and having partly grew up in a small town I can see how this would play out. It would be very much true to this story and all the ins and outs. I recommend the book for a light, on the go, read. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and finish in just a setting or two!
