“Mystery that I observe—and make, like anyone. There are certain things, it seems from birth, that stick in the mind as signs from the heart of truth, and you attach them to what you call the self.

“The self I’ve invented has always lived here, at McLean.

“My…story is of friendship, and a place”

This first-person story is set in the fictional, backwoods town of McLean, Massachusetts in the early 1960’s. The narrator, Brant Healey, is a wealthy Bostonian who first arrives in McLean in the early 1920
