"Playing Maine." I am in love with this phrase. I don't think one could necessarily apply it to other places. "Playing Alberta" or "Playing Nova Scotia" even doesn't sound quite the same. Perhaps I am as guilty, however, as the summer folk the author talks about, perhaps I am romanticising. This book could do that to a person. Poetic, nonlinear, at times deliberately vague, it is a unique approach to memoir. I think any fan of this genre should pick it up.
